Argyll & Bute | Village | ★★

[Looking towards Tighnabruaich from neighbouring Kames]

Tighnabruaich (House on the Hill) is the largest settlement on Argyll's "Secret Coast", overlooking the broad lower reaches of the Kyles of Bute. It's still tiny, and the colourful strip of shops on the main street was very quiet on our visit - though that might have had something to do with the shinty match up the road at Kames. Happily that meant there were plenty of cakes left over for us at The Tearoom; we also had a decent lunch at The Little Kitchen in Kames (it's a hard life). Tighnabruaich used to be a calling point for Clyde steamers, but (most of) these have now ceased and the village is now a backwater, albeit a very pleasant one. The surrounding countryside has some wonderfully scenic spots: see below for our picks.
