West Loch Shores, Kintyre and Argyll is well balanced offering stunning landscapes, tranquil settings, sport and beaches but also it is not without historic locations and content.
The ruins of Tarbert Castle and its grounds remain a tourist attraction and an important part of the local history. You can visit the castle and continue along forestry walks to Skipness or around the glen from there.
Tarbert Church, another monument, this one though well maintained and in use today for weekly services and other religious congregations is also an important part of local history and remains one of the most beautiful pieces of religious architecture built, certainly across Argyll.
Further down the peninsula to Campbeltown, Dunaverty Rock and St Columba's footprint are a couple of places you may be interested in visiting, or perhaps just south of Carradale visit Saddell Abbey. Traveling north on the east coast you should stop to see Skipness Castle. If you are traveling North then Kilmartin Glen is very popular, both historically and for present day visitors.
