The Argyll Coast & Islands Hope Spot is recognition of our area’s world class marine biodiversity, and its importance to the local communities that live along its shores. The diversity of life in the sea in our area is second in Scotland only to St Kilda’s.
The Hope Spot area extends from the Point of Knap to Ardnamurchan, encompassing the Garvellachs, and including the Loch Sunart to Sound of Jura MPA, Loch Sween MPA, Loch Sunart MPA (which isn’t in the Loch Sween to Sound of Jura MPA) and the Loch Creran MPA. It was proposed by Argyll’s four coastal community groups: Friends of the Sound of Jura, CROMACH, CAOLAS and Save Seil Sound.
Our Hope Spot is to be known as The Argyll Coast & Islands Hope Spot and you can read all about it HERE
