Things to Do

If you’re the sort of person whose spirits are lifted by sweeping landscapes, dramatic seascapes, clean air and the stars in the quiet night sky, there really is no place like the West Coast of Scotland.

And for the times when you’re not appreciating the natural world, you can enjoy the many other attractions the region has to offer.

Join a guided wildlife walk, play a round of golf or climb a lighthouse. Take a pony trek across wild moorland or a cruise around the islands.

If browsing is your thing, then visit some of the galleries showing work by local artists and craftspeople, or visit our museums to find out more about the history and culture of the area.

It won’t have escaped your attention that we’re rather keen on our food and drink up here – don’t miss out on a visit to a smokehouse and distillery. And when you’re ready, we’ve got award-winning restaurants and long-established inns serving good, local produce, including seafood so fresh it was swimming before lunch.
