Gateway to the West Highlands and Islands!

We stopped in Inveraray for a comfort stop in January 2010 when I partook in the West Highlands Tour. As time was limited we only had a wander round the town including the harbour and Loch Fyne. We had a look at the well known castle nearby - the castle was closed as it's only opened seasonally.

Inveraray was founded in 1745 by the Duke of Argyll who made the castle as his ancestral home. Robert Mylne, from Edinburgh, designed most of the town including the church between the back end of the 18th Century.

I look forward to returning to the town independently one day in the future. In the meantime please check out the website for further information on things to see and do there.

A bit about Loch Fyne

Loch Fyne is the largest sea lake in Scotland and is connected to the Sound of Jura by the Crinan Canal. It's reputed for its oysters fishery. It's approximately 45 miles long inland from the Sound of Bute. Please check out the website about the community around Loch Fyne by clicking on the link.
