About Argyll Walking Holidays, as the name suggests, started in Argyll in Scotland. Since 1995 we have run high-quality, essentially personal guided walking tours and hiking vacations all over Scotland, building up a reputation for care and quality. Deliberately small-scale, we have created a community of our client group,
many of whom quickly become friends.

We organise our walking holidays with freshness and enthusiasm so that our clients can get the most out of visiting this beautiful land. Our guides are not only keen walkers, but also know Scotland really well in all its aspects.

We spend time in the field to plan and prepare each holiday so that we are confident of offering an out-of-the-way experience worthy of the tradition of John Muir’s “natural beauty hunger”.
