Welcoming Argyll and Bute
Perhaps what matters most, if you’re planning to settle here, is the welcome you’ll get in our communities.
Whether you opt for an island, a village or one of our towns, you’ll be made to feel like you belong. This is a place where you matter. This is a place where you can make a difference.
From Oban to Campbeltown, and from Bute to Tiree communities come together in different ways. Community groups from Argyll and Bute have been honoured for example in previous Scotland in Bloom awards, for working together to create places that are good for health, wealth and happiness.
Our young people take up opportunities to do beach cleans together; and if you use social media, you’ll find numerous groups sharing news and promoting what’s best about their own part of Argyll and Bute.
We don’t just welcome people; Argyll and Bute also provides a welcoming home for amazing wildlife. As you hang out your washing, you might just spot a lovely red squirrel going about its business up a nearby tree. Walk along a beach and you may feel the calm, curious gaze of a friendly seal. Take a boat trip and you could be lucky enough to be joined by a joyful pod of dolphins.
For many different reasons, we love living and working in Argyll and Bute. We’re sure you would too.
