When should you visit?

The answer is, any time! The main season is between May and September when everything is open, and due to the proximity to the Gulf Stream you'll enjoy very mild and warm weather. Even in the off-season, the shops, distilleries and golf courses are open, the weather is milder than many think, and the scenery can be dramatic!

This 1870 Victorian house was granted by His Grace George Campbell, 8th Duke of Argyll, to his loyal servant Duncan Ferguson. Mr Ferguson was Procurator for His Grace until he passed in 1881. It remained in Mr Ferguson's family for a couple of decades and later went into contemporary private ownership.
