Go ‘Wild About Argyll’


The renowned Scottish adventure and ultra-endurance athlete Mark Beaumont spent part of his childhood living in Argyll, which made him a perfect choice for an epic 12-day multi-sport challenge that he undertook across the Argyll and Island region last summer. His exploits which included trail-biking, fell running, horse-riding, quad-biking, kayaking, sailing and wild swimming were all captured on film and are at the heart of a year-long campaign ‘WILD ABOUT ARGYLL’ which will be shown in cinemas, on TV, online and outdoor on digital screens through the central belt of Scotland.

Award winning folk fusion band Skerryvore released the soundtrack to the campaign LIVE FOREVER to wide acclaim last week and their new single is already topping the charts.
Listen and watch here:

Scots adventurer Mark Beaumont said: “Having spent my youngest years on a farm in Argyll, I have always wanted to go back and explore. This epic journey across land and sea didn’t disappoint and made me realise that Argyll and The Isles is one of the best adventure playgrounds in the world. There’s a staggering diversity of terrain and sporting opportunities – and I know that the series of short films made for Wild About Argyll will showcase the area in new and exciting ways. I’m proud to have roots in Argyll and can’t wait to go back.”
