Day 1 - Travel to the Cowal Peninsula
Your romantic journey begins by travelling west to Loch Lomond and on to the stunning coast of Argyll. On the way lunch at a famous Oyster Bar and visit 18th century Inveraray Castle, home of the Duke of Argyll and Chief of the Campbell Clan. The road south of here is one of the most beautiful in Scotland, as it climbs to a viewpoint above the romantic Kyles of Bute.

Your destination is a mouth-watering introduction to the West Highlands, home to charming villages, mighty mountain peaks and deep glacial lochs.
Overnight - Cowal Peninsula

Day 2 - Cowal Peninsula to the Isle of Arran
Glorious romantic walks and shoreline picnic spots abound. Explore charming villages perched around bays. A short ferry ride away is the Isle of Bute, an emerald gem home to the gothic splendour of Mount Stuart - the scene of Stella McCartney's wedding.

A short ferry crossing leads to the lively fishing village of Tarbert before your next ferry takes you across the water to Arran, known as "Scotland in Miniature".

Day 3 - Isle of Arran Sightseeing
The west coast of Arran is rugged with glorious beaches and provides great opportunities to spot wildlife. Arran Aromatics is worthy of a visit as is the Island's Distillery, home to The Arran Malt.
