THANKS FOR YOUR PATIENCE!

Argyll offers so many interesting places to visit and exciting activities to enjoy during your visit you might find that you want to spend a little linger here than you originally planned - at least that's been the experience of many of our guests so far!
To help you decide, we've suggested a few ideas.......




Cycling is a very popular way of touring on a budget and Argyll Backpackers is an excellent stopping point along NCR 78 which links Oban And Cambeltown and we are only a few minutes ride from the route. 
As you can see from the extract here, it's also easy to tie into the route from Fort William, Edinburgh, Stirling or Glasgow and you can make the experience extra special by including Mull, Arran, Islay and Jura or even Ireland to your tour.
Why not visit Dunadd, an Iron age fort where, as the ancient capital of Dalriada, many of the kings of Scotland were crowned. 
Legend has it that the stone carvings which include a footprint were part of the coronation ritual.  .
Within easy travelling distance you could also explore cup markings, standing stones and Kilmartin Museum in the same trip.



The tow paths alongside the Crinan Canal are perfect for a gentle stroll, a scenic cycle or even for canoeing!
The canal starts just 2 miles from Argyll Backpackers and can be reached via the cycle path, just minutes from our door. 

 

The village of Tarbert is an exquisite place to visit, with fabulous views, walking routes to suit all abilities and plenty of variety if you take time out for a meal, before visiting the castle of Robert the Bruce!
Although just under 10 miles from the hostel on the A83 you may prefer to travel via Kilberry so that you can enjoy the spectacular views, including stunning beaches and the famous paps of  Jura.
