Places to visit in Scotland
From vibrant cities bustling market towns to mysterious lochs and magical islands… there really is so much to see and do on Scotland’s west coast.
Whether you’re staying for a few days or a few weeks, we guarantee that you won’t get bored. Here we take a look at just some the many places you can visit that are close to our holiday park.
Just a short distance from Rosneath Castle is Loch Lomond. Covering some 71 square kilometres, the loch sits in the heart of the Trossachs National Park. You won’t find a much bigger or more beautiful loch (or lake) in the UK. Here you can take a cruise on the water, enjoy a picnic by the water’s edge, take a stroll through the woodlands or challenge yourself with a climb up Ben Lomond. You can even visit one of the Loch’s 30 islands – some of which are home to a colony of wallabies!See more
The Kyles of Bute
Sometimes known as Argyll’s Secret Coast (because, unless you venture here you wouldn’t know of its existence), the Kyles of Bute is the narrow stretch of water that separates Bute from Argyll. At their widest point the Kyles are two miles wide but narrow to just a few hundred yards in places. Here you can spot an abundance of wildlife and enjoys walks and views out over the water.See more
The main resort on the beautiful Cowal Peninsula, Dunoon is well worth a visit. The town has an attractive promenade and is built around the historic Castle Mound and famous for its large Victorian pier. Here you can browse the selection of craft shops and galleries, or enjoy a refreshment in one of the cafes or restaurants. The town is a great base to explore the surrounding attractions of Argyll Forest Park.See more
This small city is packed with history, culture, attractions and spectacular scenery. A must visit is Stirling Castle and the National Wallace Monument. If shopping is also an integral part of your holiday (or if you just fancy a quick browse) then Stirling is the place to go. Visit the Victorian Stirling Arcade or head to the The Thistles shopping centre for top brands and high street names.See more
Quite simply we think you’ll love Glasgow! About an hour from our park, this is Scotland’s largest city and is bursting with character. Glasgow is cultural hotbed and you can take it all by sampling the mix of architecture, browsing the many fascinating museums and diverse art galleries. Like Stirling, Glasgow is also something of a shopper’s paradise. Your credit card may well get a work-out here!See more
Surrounded by miles of some of the most dramatic coastline in Scotland, Oban is definitely worth a visit. This seaside town is known as the Gateway to The Isles, with a number of ferries departing from here to take you to the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Why not even take in three islands in one day? Mull, Iona and Staffa are all doable in one day, if you like a challenge!See more
Located across the water from our park but some 15 miles away by car is the pretty town of Helensburgh. Here you’ll find handsome buildings, wide elegant tree-lined streets, a long promenade and attractive parks and gardens create a pleasantly distinguished atmosphere, even more so in summer as pleasure cruisers jostle at the pier.See more
