Autumn is a great time to visit Scotland – especially for a road trip around the beautiful, yet highly underrated Argyll region

 

Scotland is top-notch road trip territory, but to be honest, there are two things that can turn a fun day on the road into a drag: lots of traffic and masses of tourists. Both combined are basically what you can expect when you’re on a road trip along Scotland’s most popular routes in the Highlands during the summer.

 

the small village of Kilmartin where we visited the carved stones in the historical graveyard and walked among the tall standing stones. There are five standing stones erected approximately 3,200 years ago in a specific alignment with the sun.

 Oban.

The route leads along Loch Awe and past Kilchurn Castle again, before it bends up towards Loch Etive and follows its shores. It  is one of my favourite routes in Scotland! We arrived in Oban slightly too late for the whisky distillery (it closes at 5 pm on weekends), but at the perfect time for a fish & chips supper by the harbour! While there are many excellent seafood restaurants in Oban, I prefer getting a takeaway and eating by the harbour front if the weather allows it. s actually vegan!

From Oban, it was a quick drive home to Craobh Haven, and with a full belly there was nothing left to do, but enjoy the sunset over the marina.
