The scenery is stunning, there are outdoor activities in abundance, no rush hour traffic, and everyone is very friendly and open. If you enjoy the great outdoors, want a more laid-back approach to life, want your children to grow up without the pressures to grow up too quickly, and with nature playing a huge part in their life then Argyll and Bute is the best.

Lorna Mitchell

Argyll is a great place to be because it’s wild and accessible at the same time and there’s always an adventure to be had.
I’ve fallen in love with it.”

Arlene Cullum, Cove

I feel welcome, I feel safe, everything is available. I feel healthy and I feel free living here
