Combine a visit to the Olympics 2012 with a walking holiday in Scotland


The Olympics will make London the place to be next July and August… but many international visitors have their own individual ideas about what makes a perfect opening or closing ceremony and, with the help of About Argyll Walking Holidays and its unique highland explorations, are putting Scotland centre-stage in their personal games planning.

Distances in the UK are small, but scenic and cultural differences are big, so getting to Scotland from London is easy and the rewards are so much bigger than the effort involved for those whose major international journey is already done. Exchanging the bustle of London for stress-free, healthy exercise amid the fascinating beauty of highland glens and Hebridean islands is the personal gold medal aspiration of many who are prepared to think beyond the Olympic rings.

For those who would prefer their getaway from the city to take place after the games, About Argyll has two walking holidays, each running from 11th to 18th August. For lovers of creature comforts and less difficult walks ‘Highland Perthshire, Argyll and the Isles’ luxury walking tour, which visits, among other highlights, Loch Tay and the Isles of Mull and Ulva, offers the luxury accommodation of Fortingall Hotel and Barcaldine House:

For those who prefer a more demanding hiking vacation, ‘The Best of Argyll’ hiking trip, is perfect; based in Oban, it visits Glen Coe and Kilmartin Glen as well as the isles of Kerrera, Lismore and Jura. More at

Before the games? ‘Discovering South Argyll’ walking holiday from July 14th – 21st, is based in the pleasingly little-known Cowal peninsula. Highlights include forays to Loch Lomond, Inveraray and the Isle of Bute. Details at:

About Argyll Walking Holidays, as the name suggests, started in Argyll in Scotland. Since 1995 it has run high-quality, essentially personal walking tours there, building up a reputation for care and quality. Deliberately small-scale, it has created a community of its client group, many of whom quickly become friends. Full details of all of About Argyll’s holidays can be seen at
