As I find Green tourism offers and activities I will add them here : if you are a local (North Argyll) business with something to include, please get in touch.
Having a light touch on our planet does not mean shutting ourselves in a box ! there is so much we can do to tread softly, enjoy deeply, support quality, and leave as little a mark behind as we can. Kintaline is signed up to Tourism Declares a Climate emergency
Staying in one place is a big step and Kintaline is an ideal home to tarry a while. Week lets are our normal, with many guests staying longer, and still having plenty to come back for.
Supporting our local economy is vital, especially our food producers, and we have some amazing farmers in this area. If I can help, by collecting an Oban food Hub order on Thursday evening for your Friday arrival, I am more than happy. The farm gate offerings are well worth stopping for. The kitchen is extremely well equipped including 4 oven range, so cooking (& cleaning
Other businesses will be understanding and implementing their own green tourism strategies, and I will add offers here as I find them.
Our local ecology is rich and diverse : the flora and fauna on land and underwater is awe-inspiring, there are many ways to enjoy.
Being in the hills and on the water are popular ways to spend holidays here, rewarded by amazing views, wildlife, and experiences to last a lifetime.
Heritage, culture and arts are such an important part of this area : people have lived here since the last Ice Age left 8000 years ago, and have left important parts of their history behind : standing stones, forts, castles, music, language - and in the modern era creative artists are inspired by our surroundings. Craft studios, local arts shops, activity workshops are perfect gems to stop and shop. The Kintaline facebook page shares local events as they come up including musical and theatre performances.
