Winter Trees

Winter Closing Times

I had read a fair bit on attractions in and around Argyll before we went and did notice there were a lot of gardens scattered around the area. It wasn't much of a surprise to learn they are all closed during November through to April. What I didn't expect was to see the hotel bars and restaurants had winter closing times - this meant from approximately 14.30 after lunch until 19.00 you couldn't even get a cup of coffee. I suppose it all comes down to the winter season with few tourists around spending money these places could not afford the wages bill for idle staff.

Unique Suggestions: At least the scenery is always open and going with the weather always changing. You can always fill a thermos flask with some tea and/or coffee and take it with you to drink in the car.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
