Traveling in Argyll and Bute and to the islands
As travel restrictions are lifted, the council is urging people to continue to act responsibly and follow government advice.
From 26 April 2021, people will be able to travel to Argyll and Bute’s islands and we look forward to welcoming you back. The Scottish Government is encouraging anyone planning to visit a Scottish Islands to test for coronavirus prior to travel. We would ask you to consider taking these tests to keep yourself and the communities your visit safe.
