You can fish off the rocks, local piers or by taking a boat trip. There are also three, well stocked lochs only five minutes’ drive from Portavadie where you can fish for trout.
Lots of guests have left glowing reviews on TripAdvisor after a stay at Portavadie. These excerpts from recent reviews sum up all that’s wonderful about the place:
‘The newly opened spa and leisure complex takes the whole Portavadie experience to a whole new level. Exercise machines in the gym all look out over Loch Fyne, as does the heated indoor swimming pool and luxury spa area. Outside, two piping hot Jacuzzis sit next to the largest outdoor infinity pool in Scotland. Relax in it its warmth and look out across Loch Fyne to Arran beyond. I can think of nowhere on the planet that I’d rather be.’
‘Stunning. Amazing location, beautiful spot, so serene. Ferry to take you to smaller more remote locations right at this marina. Rooms were clean and simple but modern. Loved taking quiet walks and watching all the boats. Restaurant is very good, delicious food.’
‘Fabulous luxury apartment overlooking the marina. All rooms en suite, sauna and well fitted kitchen, great space for entertaining… Oh and the views…. Simply stunning.’
With validity stretching until the end of March 2020, this Big Deal would make a spectacular gift or a perfect post-festive getaway.
Enjoy the changing seasons while exploring Argyll’s Secret Coast from a luxurious base at Portavadie with today’s Big Deal.
