Capital of Argyll, Lochgilphead's regional importance far outweighs its small size. The town has occupies a pretty (and pretty remote) position overlooking a sheltered inlet of Loch Fyne. Argyll Street is the short but attractive main street stretching back from the main road and esplanade, boasting a decent clutch of independent shops and places to eat. Admittedly there isn't a huge amount to do here, but this has saved the town from becoming a tourist trap, and if exploring southern Argyll by road you're bound to pass through sooner or later. The Crinan Canal also passes close by.
