Walking – many coastal, hill and forest walks for all abilities and interests (but don’t forget to follow the Outdoor Access Code!).

Gardens – fine and special gardens to explore, including National Trust collections.

Fishing – loch and river fishing is available BY PERMIT ONLY from Loch Awe in the north all the way down to the southern tip of Kintyre.  Oban and Lorn Angling Club are very helpful and have a useful website giving further details of fishing in the area.

Golf – there are eight different golf courses to the north and nine to the south.

Watersports – Paddleboarding, boat hire, canoes: Craobh Haven Watersports is right in the village, just a few minutes walk away. Great for getting the kids (or partner!) out of the way for a few hours!  

Boat Trips – Sea Leopard from Ardfern both come highly recommended.  Kids and adults alike seem to love the Sea.fari boat trips round the islands – a cross between a wildlife tour and a funfair ride!
