Inveraray

[Inveraray main street]

Majestic castle, historic jail, bell tower and delightful views across Loch Fyne to the surrounding hills... these are all on the list of Inveraray's attractions, combining to form a settlement far more enticing than its small population would suggest. The village can get a little busy during peak season but this doesn't detract from the charming whitewashed main street (almost the only street), with even the supermarket blending in with its neighbours. Allow the best part of a day here to explore this Argyll hub probably second only to Oban in terms of overall interest. Coffee shops and places to eat abound; we can recommend the restaurant at the George Hotel for its decent food and rustic ambience (unsurprising, given the building dates to 1770). Several miles north at the head of the loch is the excellent Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, serving excellent, high-end seafood.
