Find cottages in Argyll and ButeVisit Argyll and Bute

The Argyll and Bute region has been a favourite with holidaymakers for years and it's easy to understand why with so much beautiful countryside, lochs and coastline to admire.

The extensive choice of holiday cottages in Argyll and Bute provide the perfect base for great outdoor breaks, lovers of breath taking views and those who simply enjoy relaxing holidays!

With miles of unspoiled coastline, fantastic gardens, a wealth of history and heritage and lots of fantastic opportunities to get out and about amongst lovely countryside, there's so much on offer here it can be tricky to decide where to spend your days.

The region is perfect for walkers and cyclists who want to escape into an unspoilt landscape of mountains, forests and lochs and its extensive coastline offers visitors plenty of opportunities to get onto the water; there is excellent sailing, kayaking, surfing and windsurfing.

You'll find holiday cottages that aren't exactly short of beautiful surroundings that are literally right on the door step, for example take some of Argyll's stunning gardens such as Benmore Botanic Garden, which has an incredible mountainside setting and a world-famous horticultural collection, including a stunning array of flora from all over the world or Inverary Castle Gardens and stately home on the edge of Loch Fyne covering 16 acres.

Of course whisky plays a large part of Argyll and Bute's heritage so it goes without saying that a visit to the Oban Distillery is well worthwhile. Learn all about single malt production on the tour then maybe sample a wee-dram afterwards!

If you're looking for something a little more active then drop by Stramash Activity Centre where you can enjoy lots of adventure and activities including kayaking, mountain biking, orienteering and more.

The landscape of Argyll and Bute is rich and varied, offering a wealth of choice and a variety of different holiday themes to suit families and couples alike.

These cottages (refs SBW, SRRL and UAA, see below for individual description) are set on the beautiful Kildalloig Estate on The Mull of Kintyre. Set against the rugged beauty of the sea and the wild landscape of the Kintyre Peninsula, they provide an idyllic sanctuary, offering modern amenities and historic coastal charm. Surrounded by natural beauty and sea views, each cottage is comfortably furnished, provides wonderful character and history and has been thoughtfully arranged to accommodate couples, honeymooners, families, golfers, hikers, birdwatchers and other visitors. There are wonderful stretches of secluded beach and coastal walks (with coves and rockpools, ideal for children), and the fascinating little island of Davaar with its lighthouse, cave painting and wild goats which can be reached on foot at low tide. There are marvellous walks along the coast and through woodland on the Estate – where seals, otters and a variety of birds can be seen – and in the hills, where golden eagles soar. The cottages provide the classic Scottish seaside holiday spot - with an abundant number of rocky and sandy beaches close by and pristine sandy beaches within 5-15 minutes’ drive. Activities locally include surfing, sea fishing, horse trekking, mountain biking and island hopping to Gigha, Islay and Arran. Kintyre is home to five golf courses - the most famous is the championship course at Macrihanish with its stunning and infamous first hole. There are a further two 18-hole golf courses - Southend and Machrihanish Dunes and two excellent 9-hole courses in Carradale and Tarbet. Campbeltown (4 miles) has supermarkets, shops, restaurants and leisure centre (with swimming pool, gym, sauna and sun beds). In its day, Campbeltown had over 30 whisky distilleries. Today only two survive – Glen Scotia and Springbank, with the latter offering tours by appointment. Further attractions in Campbeltown include the Campbeltown Cross, the quaint Art Deco cinema, the Birds of Prey centre, the Museum, the Linda McCartney memorial garden and the Mull Lighthouse. Shops and pub 3 miles.

Set right next to a secluded beach, Fisherman’s Cottage is wonderfully romantic and private. This cosy single-storey cottage enjoys a very picturesque and peaceful setting with spectacular views over the Kilbrannan Sound to Arran and the Island of Davaar.

With wonderful sea views and complete privacy, this is the perfect place for a romantic break, honeymoon or simply to get away from it all.
