ARDGARTAN HOTEL - Nestled in a dramatic woodland glen and overlooked by the Arrochar Alps, the Ardgartan Hotel offers forest walks or time to simply relax and contemplate the spectacular views. The Ardgartan Hotel provides comfortable and accessible bedrooms with exceptional views. All bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom with a choice of bath or shower, as well as flat screen TV’s, hairdryer and tea making facilities. The impressive glass fronted foyer enables a relaxed space with panoramic views of Loch Long and chance to enjoy scenery.

Ardgartan lies on the shores of Loch Long and is part of The Argyll Forest Park which stretches from the Holy Loch to the Firth of Clyde, incorporating the Arrochar Alps and the notorious Cobbler Peak. Ardgartan’s grounds are particularly rich in wildlife and the waters outside the hotel are often home to seals, otters and occasionally bottlenose dolphins. Oyster catchers, gannets, cormorants and ospreys are also regularly spotted. Red, roe and fallow deer are popular in the grounds too which makes Ardgartan the perfect location for nature lovers.

ARGYLL AND THE ISLES - is a glorious coastal region of glittering sea lochs, islands, hills and glens just waiting to be explored. It’s divided into eight areas, each with a distinctive character and offering a unique experience. On the second morning of our holiday we will take time to relax in the hotel and explore the hotel surroundings, then in the afternoon we will visit the “Queen of the Lakes” and explore the famous bonnie banks. Loch Lomond lies in the national park and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Cruise Loch Lomond to fully appreciate the landscape and arrive at the pretty conservation village of Luss,

DUNOON and BENMORE GARDENS – sitting on the Firth of the River Clyde, Dunoon is a traditional seaside resort.

During our stay we will enjoy a day tour through Callander and the Trossachs ‘The Highlands in Miniature’. Callander is the hub of the Trossachs and one of the most romantic in Scotland.
