WHAT TO LOOK FOR...

History Revealed - - HERE & NOW HOW BRITAIN’S TREASURES -

CAS­TLE

The seat of the dukes of Ar­gyll, this tur­reted man­sion is un­doubt­edly the town’s most strik­ing land­mark. It fea­tures in­tri­cate Neo-Gothic win­dows and a 16-acre gar­den.

DUN NA CUAICHE

Clam­ber up the Dun na Cuaiche on the out­skirts of town and you’ll be greeted by an 18th-cen­tury watch­tower, with stun­ning views of the loch, town and cas­tle to boot.

LOCH FYNE

Stretch­ing for 40 miles, the loch on which In­ver­aray sits is the long­est sea loch in Scot­land. On its shores, you’ll find plenty of scenic walks, drives and pic­nic spots.

ARAY BRIDGE

This bridge in the grounds of the cas­tle was built on the site of Gen­eral Wade’s 18th-cen­tury mil­i­tary bridge, which was de­stroyed by flood­ing.

JAIL

This grisly 19th-cen­tury jail is now a fas­ci­nat­ing mu­seum. See for your­self what prison was like for a Vic­to­rian con­vict, as ac­tors por­tray the char­ac­ters who lived in­side.

MAIN STREET

Take a stroll on In­ver­aray’s blackand-white high street, browse the tra­di­tional sou­venir stores, and end your walk with a trip to the Loch Fyne whisky shop.
