Last month I took a trip to the Oban area and stayed at the oh-so-lovely Airdeny Chalets in Taynuilt. I loved its location: on the edge of gorgeous Glen Lonan, under the watchful gaze of Ben Cruachan and a hop away from the shores of Loch Etive. I have written a few guest posts on some of the activities we did during our stay (a boat trip with SeaFari Adventures to the Corryvreckan Whirlpool, a visit to the Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary and our first family bike ride in Glen Lonan), but thought I’d collect some of my favourite photos from my Argyll adventure here.
We travelled down the A90 from Aberdeen to Perth and then followed the very scenic A85 that skirts the top of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, kisses the shores of Loch Earn, threads through rugged glens and mountains, and tucks into the edge of Loch Awe. As well as the stunning ruins of Kilchurn Castle, Loch Awe is home to the beautiful St Conan’s Kirk – a lovely little gem between Dalmally and Taynuilt. From there, it was just a hop and a skip to our base at Airdeny Chalets.
