The Sunset Trail

There's a good chance that just by looking west at the right time of day and in the right weather conditions, you'll catch a fantastic sunset in Argyll. But some locations can elevate the spectacle to the next level. Our Sunset sites offer silhouetted islands and headlands, reflective waters and perhaps a nearby pub to warm up in afterwards!

Pay attention to the season to catch the best sunsets. In mid-summer the sun doesn’t set in Argyll until after 10pm, whereas in mid-winter it sets before 4pm.

Please be mindful of local residents, livestock and wildlife when visiting a site at sunset or after dark by staying quiet and respecting local guidance. Don’t forget to bring a torch, suitable footwear and warm clothing.
