I find it hard to describe the beauty I found in this town. The views were breathtaking...the people incredibly friendly....and the whole ambience just enveloped all of me!! If you can't tell ....this is one town that you must see if visiting Scotland!
I didn't know what this town had to offer...it was just a layover point on my trip ...and as I drove into the town in late afternoon and saw the postcard views it took my breath away!
A visit to the local pubs is a must! The Argyll Hotel and The George Hotel both offer wonderful local atmosphere and good food. They have monderately priced lodging as well.
Inveraray Castle is the home of the 13th Duke of Argyll and his family and is the Seat of the Campbell Clan.

The Maritime Museum sits next to the pier in the heart of Inveraray. It is housed on a ship called the Artic Penquin. It offers wonderful interactive displays and a special Davey Jones' Locker display for the kids.
It has a lot of history ~~the ship was used as a youth training vessel and a cruise ship before finding its way to the pier. It is a wonderful schooner that was built around 1910. The museum has a gift shop and coffee shop. There is another ship at the pier the Vital Spark which is under restoration.
