Arduaine Garden, Tarbert and Loch Fyne - Tour Argyll and the Cowal Peninsula


About this tour

From Oban, this tour visits the fabulous National Trust for Scotland Garden at Arduaine. This wonderful coastal garden forms a horticultural tour around the temperate world with a collection of rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias, Blue Tibetab poppies, giant Himalayan lilies and Chatham Island forget-me-nots.

Arduaine Garden is a tranquil green oasis on the south slope of the Arduaine peninsula on the West Coast, south of Oban, with something to see every day of the year.

After leaving Arduaine, the tour moves south to the village of Tarbert on Loch Fyne. This busy little fishing port has a lot to attract visitors not least of which is the stunning scenery the quirky art galleries and numerous restaurants.

Having crossed Loch Fyne from Tarbert onboard one of the world's first battery powered ferries, the tour takes the journey to the viewpoint overlooking the Kyles of Bute (designated as a National Scenic Area).

The return to Oban is via Glen Daruel, Strachur, the shores of Loch Fyne, Inveraray and the shores of Loch Awe.
