  1. An Sgurr on Eigg (c) Robin McKelvie

    The Ultimate Guide to the Small Isles

    The Small Isles is not exactly a name to get the spirit soaring and the heart rate racing. Despite the prosaic moniker the quartet of Small Isles – which lie tucked spectacularly between Skye to the north and Ardnamurchan to the south – all have plenty to justify a visit to them, or even better, to the whole archipelago. Getting…

    7 Great Things to See and Do in Argyll

The hulking mountains of Argyll –including its highest peak Ben Cruachan – soar all around the silvery loch and tower above its tree shrouded banks….

  5. Loch Long (c) Robin McKelvie

    Return to the Argyll Sea Lochs

    Long gone are the days when paddle steamers packed with excited holidaymakers graced their way around the epic fjord-like sea loch of Argyll. This wildly beautiful corner of Scotland has been in the doldrums for a while, but I’m pleased to report there are plenty of reasons to head to The Firth of Clyde’s sea lochs, rather than just its better…

The legions now flock to the Mediterranean beaches, leaving the Firth of Clyde estuary blissfully free of crowds, but still packed with reasons to head…

  10. Cowal Peninsula (c) Robin McKelvie

    Cowal – Scotland’s Forgotten Peninsula, an Epic Land of Sea Lochs, Rugged Hills and World Class Seafood.

    It says a lot when even most of my Scottish friends asked ‘where?’ when I said I was heading off to The Cowal Peninsula. It said even more when they all started guessing, with a few sticking it in the Highlands and one even floating this Argyll oasis off to the Shetland Isles. Cowal may not be well known, but,…
