Immerse yourself in Argyll's Secret Coast

At the south-west corner of Cowal you’ll come to Argyll’s Secret Coast, an undiscovered area of sparkling sea lochs and ancient forests. Discover fabulous seafood, welcoming pubs, a wide range of holiday accommodation, a vibrant arts scene, breathtaking scenery, ancient sites and loads of outdoor activities. 

This is world-class sailing country, with islands, natural harbours, sheltered beaches, anchorages and shore-side facilities. There’s also excellent walking, cycling and kayaking on offer. Make sure you visit Ostel Bay, a stunning white sandy beach.
