Live life on the edge of Loch Long. Admire stunning scenery, escape from life's stresses and explore the great outdoors – or the cosy indoors. Your adventure at Forest Holidays Ardgartan Argyll on the fringes of the Argyll Forest Park may well start with a journey through the wilds of Scotland, but Glasgow airport is less than an hour away should you fly and hire a car. Famous Loch Lomond is right nearby.

The 40 luxury self-catering cabins come in 3 types to suit different families, including wheelchair-adapted options and dog-friendly cabins. You needn't worry about loading the car with essentials; cots, highchairs and baby carriers can be pre-booked, as can playpens and holiday packs complete with toys and birdlife- and insect-spotting activities.

Or to take things further, book onto a Forest Ranger course, learn survival skills, follow the Shaun the Sheep Trail through the forest, playing games and learning as you go, hire bikes for all the family or book a quad-biking session. You can also head out on the water by rowing boat or canoe or aboard a loch cruise.

Tired out by all that fresh air and outdoors fun, pre-book meal packs (including breakfast treats, BBQ food and takeaways) and in-cabin spa treatments plus kids' nail art sessions.

Alternative suggestion: Head east to Strathyre and experience more of what Forest Holidays have to offer in Scotland.
