Sylvia Earle'The Argyll Coast is a place of great beauty, but also of great importance. Home, not only, to people with a love and appreciation for the sea, but to such a wonderful mix of creatures. Thank you for doing what you’re doing to ensure a healthy future for the Argyll Coast and for the rest of the world’s oceans.'

Thanks to coastal communities around the Argyll coast who care passionately about the marine environment, we are able to celebrate the recognition of the first Mission Blue Hope Spot in Scotland and mainland UK. This new Hope Spot joins an impressive and growing number around the world.

Collectively, Hope Spots can help to protect and restore marine biodiversity on a local, regional, national and international scale.
