Discover the wilderness of Argyll on horseback. Stunning settings around Knapdale, Loch Sween and the coastline. You can bring your own horse or book an adventure at a local riding establishment, of which there are three near by:
On the shore of Loch Sween at Daltote Equestrian Centre they have ponies and horse to suit everyone’s standards. It s all located on a working farm about 12 miles out of Lochgilphead. They also have a 150 acre cross country course, jumping area and access across miles of hills. Good qualified teachers and an approved centre. T: 01546 850246
Our closest riding school to us is at Ardfern, the Lunga Riding Stables. Again this is set in stunning scenery with qualified instructors and can cater to everyone’s abilities. They specialize in western trail riding with the traditional saddles. www.lunga.com
Also Argyll Adventure, if you are visiting Inveraray, has a riding school again on the coast with stunning forestry rides. www.argylladventure.com
We would recommend any of these three riding schools. My children have horses at Ederline and have some of their best days disappearing with a picnic and a pony!!
