The North Coast of Argyll includes parts of Old Argyll such as Kinlochleven, Glencoe, and Ballachulish all of which are now politically part of the Highland Region but also where most dwellers retain their postal address as Argyll. The northern area is stunning with the backdrop of the Glencoe Munros and views to the west dominated by the Morvern mountains. The coastal area is on the shores of Loch Linnhe and the great arm of Loch Leven. This particular area of coarse is steeped in the romantic and black history of the Scottish Nation such as the Glencoe Massacre and the famous Appin Murder.

We have included Bridge of Orchy and Dalmally, in the Argyll Coast Website even although neither are on the coast. They are in fact both near the shores of Lochs.
Bridge of Orchy on the river Orchy is very near Loch Tulla and Dalmally is a mile or two from the large body of water which is Loch Awe.
The main road to the North West of Scotland, the A82, runs from Glasgow to Fort William. This road skirts the Eastern Boundary of Argyll at Loch Lomond and then skirts the Northern Boundary of Argyll at Tyndrum, and then Glencoe. Many ill informed visitors continue North completely oblivious to the fact that there are bypassing some of the most spectacular areas of Scotland that is Argyll.
How to get to the Argyll Coast will depend upon where you are coming from. If you are coming from Ireland by way of Stranraer or Troon, or by Prestwick airport then an ideal entry point is by ferry from Gourock on the South Clyde coast to Dunoon. Alternatively from Glasgow head for Loch Lomond and enter via the Helensburgh Road, Arrochar or Tyndrum to Dalmally or North to Bridge of Orchy
