WHAT TO LOOK FOR...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
