Why Take Your 2024 Lodge Break in Argyll?

Argyll is a gem on the west coast of Scotland, brimming with rugged landscapes and coastal scenes that'll make your Instagram followers green with envy. Forget about the usual hotel scene; lodges provide that home-from-home comfort with a slice of luxury, surrounded by nature. In 2024, Argyll is upping the ante with new attractions like the state-of-the-art visitor centre at The Kilmartin Museum, showcasing the region's rich prehistoric and medieval past. The area is unique for its blend of culture, adventure, and tranquillity. Plus, there's always something going on, from the traditional Highland Games to the Tarbert Seafood Festival. A lodge break here means waking up to loch views, not lift music.

If you're visiting Argyll with kids

Absolutely, Argyll's a playground for the little ones. There's enough to keep them buzzing all day, from wildlife parks to castle ruins that'll spark their imagination. Lodges are ideal for families, offering space and privacy, and often come with gardens for kids to run around in.

Here's what you need to pack:

  1. Waterproofs and wellies – the weather can be unpredictable.
  2. Binoculars for wildlife spotting – eagles, deer, you name it.
  3. Swim gear – for those brave enough to dip into the lochs or sea.
  4. Outdoor toys – frisbees and footballs for beach fun.
  5. Snacks for energy – exploring is hungry work.

Don't miss the Auchindrain Township for a vivid history lesson or the Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary to meet some marine friends.

Pet Friendly Argyll Adventures

Argyll rolls out the red carpet for pets, especially dogs. You'll find plenty of lodges with enclosed gardens, so your furry friends can roam safely. When it comes to dining, The Oystercatcher in Lochgilphead and The Galley of Lorne Inn in Ardfern welcome pets with open arms.

A real tip? Check for any local livestock when out and about – you don't want Rover causing a sheep stampede. Also, tick prevention is a must; the great outdoors is their playground too. And remember, some beaches have seasonal restrictions, so do your homework before letting your pooch loose on the sands.
