Imagine a place where sky, stone and sea meet...

A sparkling gem on Scotland's West Coast. Created by fire and ice. Set amongst heather, fern, lochs and beaches. Polished by the rain, surf and countless generations of nice folk who have lived and visited here.

Cave people. Picts. Gaels. Vikings. Victorians. All have left their mark. But it is not a place frozen in time.

Take a short drive, ride, sail, paddle, hike, cycle or stroll in any direction to find adventure. From wild islands and majestic mountains to iconic castles and enigmatic stone circles. Or just relax and soak up the tranquil west coast vibe along with a breathtaking sunset or the Northern lights. 


Imagine a wee town. On a wee bay.  A place that offers visitors a warm welcome but hasn't lost its authenticity. Now imagine that it’s very easy to reach this sparkling gem. Imagine that it's less than 3 hours from Glasgow via major transportation hubs.

You don't have to imagine...
