As the summer months come to an end and the leaves start to fall, Argyll’s landscape transforms into an autumnal haven bursting with orange and gold.

Autumn in Argyll offers an abundance of activities, wide open spaces and a unique, laid back pace.

We have teamed up with a host of attractions across Argyll to offer exclusive discounts for Argyll Holidays guests. From castles and museums to loch cruises and delicious restaurants, our diverse range of partners have something to suit everyone.

We have highlighted some of our friends below who are open throughout Autumn 2021 (subject to government restrictions). Be sure to make the most of our exclusive offers!

Experience the world-famous Loch Lomond landscape from a unique perspective as you go off-road with 4x4 Adventure Scotland. Enjoy exclusive access to rough, steep tracks on the hills around Loch Lomond and Loch Long, with both areas offering breath-taking views. You can enjoy a Guided Tour or an Off-Road Driving experience in iconic Land Rover Defenders, with your own kilted adventure guide! For full day tours, they will even come pick you up from your holiday park of choice – well worth a day out in the glorious Scottish landscape.

Argyll Adventure offers horse riding lessons for children and adults of various ages and abilities. Choose from a 20 minute relaxed ride along the shores of the beautiful Loch Fyne or a two hour off-road trek at a faster pace – a fun and unique way to see the sights from horseback. Alternatively Argyll Adventure also offers zombie-themed paintball and laser tag, as well as crossbow shooting for the survivalists out there – perfect for a good old fashioned competition between friends to see who can hit the most zombies.


Ever wanted to have a shot at clay pigeon shooting but don’t know where to start? Argyll & Bute Clay Pigeon Co offer exclusive, discounted taster sessions for guests looking to try their hand at the exciting sport. Why not get a group of friends together and battle for who can get the most hits?

Benmore's 120 acres feature a world-famous collection of plants from the Orient and the Himalaya to North and South America.  Take advantage of your exclusive discount today and experience the stunning gardens.


Experience the serenity of the bonnie banks with Cruise Loch Lomond. A tour guide will share fascinating facts and information as you sail along Loch Lomond with a refreshment from the onboard bar in your hand. 


For those drizzly days that you'd rather be inside, Sea Life Loch Lomond houses close to over 1500 creatures (including Scotland’s largest selection of sharks) and hold creatures such as starfish and crabs. The family will love this day out, with fun talks, and live animal feeds to keep the little ones entertained. Enjoy exclusive discounts on entry and explore the creatures living in the great blue sea.


There is plenty to do in Argyll all year round, and September is no exception.
