Tighnabruaich Gallery sits in the pretty seaside village of Tighnabruaich, Argyll, on Scotland’s west coast, backing on to the Kyles of Bute. It’s a truly beautiful part of the world that’s been a great source of inspiration for many artists. A visit means you not only see the art, but experience the landscape and light that inspires so much of it.
This part of Argyll is wild, with hills, a rugged coastline, white beaches, sea lochs, clear waters and ancient forests. It’s called Argyll’s Secret Coast because of its undiscovered charm. Tighnabruaich may feel remote, but it’s less than two hours drive from Glasgow. And it’s a great place to spend some time (and sample some fresh seafood), so why not make a weekend of it?
