Argyll bids to be biggest national park

ARGYLL could become Britain’s largest national park stretching from Tiree to the coast of West Kintyre if thecouncil’s bid is successful.

The giant 2,650-square-mile conservation area, dubbed the Argyll and Islands National Park, would also encompass Islay, Gigha, Jura, Colonsay, Scarba, the Slate Islands and Garvellachs, Kerrera, Lismore, Mull, Iona and Coll.

Scotland’s first coastal park would dwarf Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park – and even the Cairngorms National Park, currently the UK’s largest at 1,748 square miles.
