About the neighbourhood
The picturesque loch side villages of Tighnabruaich and Kames on Argyll’s Secret Coast are the perfect holiday escapes. Walkers, sailors, anglers, cyclists and artists all come here for the stunning scenery and tranquillity. It has a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. Take a trip down the loch on board the Waverley, the world’s last ocean-going paddle steamer. There’s also a hilly nine-hole golf course – the views down the Kyles of Bute from here are breathtaking.
