Argyll and the Isles

We are a traditional & personal matchmaking agency available throughout Argyll and the Isles.

Dating in Scotland – Argyllshire

Argyllshire is in the west of Scotland at the southern end of the Highlands and is based on the County Town of Inveraray. It was originally home to settlers from Ireland, known as Dalriadic Scots. The name is Gaelic and means border or edge of the Gael.

It is a remote but very picturesque area with a rugged coastline and temperate climate, that is very attractive to tourists, who flock to this lovely county during the summer months. With 23 inhabited islands off the coast, Inveraray is an important ferry port conveying people backwards and forwards to the mainland.

The remoteness of Argyllshire is a problem within dating however for people seeking introductions to potential new partners, as the population is low in terms of numbers and density. So, using Scotland’s only national agency in Country Partners and our headhunting service, could well be highly advantageous. Please do get in touch therefore.


What We Do

Our personal matchmaking service is the only one in Scotland, we believe, that covers the whole of the country – which is a huge advantage. We have a team of matchmakers that is now very experienced, with some members of the team having worked within the dating industry for 10 years plus. So, you can join with confidence.

We have a very extensive, upmarket database of people across the whole of mainland Great Britain, all of which have been personally interviewed and then carefully vetted, to ensure that they are 100% who they say they are, we insist on seeing photographic ID and also check clients out in terms of their address, that they are genuinely single, that they haven’t been involved in crime (online dating crime is one of the fastest growing crime categories in the UK currently) and also that they are solvent and free from bankruptcies and county court judgements.

Interviews are normally the first interaction between the client and their matchmaker as initial contact is usually with one of our friendly membership advisers, who are trained to advise on the most suitable membership level, according to client circumstance. They also talk the prospective client through the world of matchmaking and how we operate at Country Partner, as well as the many advantages we have over online dating or dating through a smartphone app. We are obviously able to offer a far more personal service than simply swiping left or right on a phone, which must become very tedious after a while.

The advice we give through our membership advisers is always free in terms of cost and also pressure free. Our aim is simply to get you to a point where you have enough information to decide yourself whether Country Partners is for you or not.

The Matchmaking Process

If you do decide to join, then once you’re through our onboarding process which is conducted by our Client Registration Coordinators Vicky and Alison, you will be introduced to your personal matchmaker who will conduct your interview and begin the process of getting to know you very thoroughly. It is the matchmaker’s role to guide you through the matchmaking process by understanding you and the type of partner you’d really like to meet and then using our fabulous Duo, matchmaking software to search for compatible partners, who we hope you will be attracted to.

Typically we will get matches out to you, usually monthly to give you time to truly get to know and evaluate that person, also you can use your ‘hold’ facility at various points if you want more time to evaluate one of your matches. Our hope is always to find a long term partner for you during the lifetime of your membership. Sometimes we get it right first time, sometimes it takes a few matches to get there, but rest assured that we are changing around 50 lives each and every week through successful matchmaking and clients going into exchange.
