See & Do - Highlands and IslandsVisiting the Inner and Outer Hebrides from Argyll, West Scotland.

Ardfern is a beautiful and tranquil West Coast village which has been popular with holiday-makers for many years and each cottage has its own spectacular views of Loch Craignish, its islands and the hills beyond. 

Ferry Crossings to the Islands and Hebrides

Caledonian MacBrayne offer scheduled ferry services from Oban to many of the Scottish Islands.  A trip to the Isle of Mull from Oban is a great day out - on Mull you may wish to take the Steam Train to visit Torosay Castle and Gardens.  For a longer day on Mull, a visit to Tobermory (made famous as "Balamory" in the childrens' TV programme), or the sacred Isle of Iona is also possible.  Bowman's Isle of Mull Tours connect with the ferry.

A short ferry crossing takes you from the "Bridge over the Atlantic" at Seil Island to the Island of Luing, and the old slate-quarrying island of Easdale with its disused workings and award-winning museum & craft centre.

Also within easy reach are Islay & Jura (famous for their malt whisky distilleries), Gigha, Arran and little Kerrera in Oban Bay.
