Things to Do in Argyll – The Cowal Way
Following the Cowal Peninsula, the Cowal Way is considered to be one of Scotland’s most scenic walks! A pleasant 5 days of walking takes you through forests and waterfalls, bringing you closer to an abundance of Scottish cultural heritage! Along the route, that begins in Portavadie, you can visit Dunans Castle, Strachur Smiddy – a converted museum and craft shop and the former house of James Neilson, a Glasgow engineer who patented the blast furnace. The Cowal peninsula is an incredibly popular destination for tourists all year round, the largest town of Dunoon has boat, bus and road access to Glasgow. Why not consider booking the Cowal Way and benefit from this great March promotion!
Aside from The Cowal Way, there are lots of things to do in Argyll. The Cowal Peninsula is the perfect place to go to relax, there are so many beaches and uninhabited areas to explore! Ostel Bay and Ardentinny are tucked away, but perfect for the whole family to enjoy. At quieter times of the year, you may find you have the whole beach to yourself!
Also, the Cowal Peninsula is known for having a range of wildlife, from ducks and gannets to deer. Particularly around Loch Goil, there are always opportunities to spot seals! In the Scottish Highlands you will be lucky to see lots of different species, look at our last post to learn more about spending time in the North of Scotland.
Another chance to unwind after walking The Cowal Way is by paying a visit to Benmore Botanic Gardens. Located outside of Dunoon, Benmore Botanic Garden is home to a variety of plant life. In an area with lots of little walks and local craft spots, you can expect to return from the Cowal Peninsula feeling refreshed.
A much calmer and shorter route than the West Highland Way, another one of our other popular walks, The Cowal Way is perfect for those who want to explore a quieter, more serene part of West Scotland.
