Shut now for years .Pier is in need of much cash to get it open again ,real shame as many people loved fishing and just walking out the pier and looking across the loch.Somebody somewhere must have the capability to spend some of that lottery money that I keep donating to used here.?

Changes with the season and the state of the old boats at its heart. Pretty good this summer, and lovely to see The Vital Spark puffer boat. The pier itself is in need of some TLC so not as user friendly for fishing and wildlife watching as in the past.

This is a good pit stop when travelling south from the highlands and includes a small town oasis from the hills.

The maritime centre needs refurbishing and make it more accessible to the public. Disappointed that we cannot get and access up close to see the Vital Spark and really came to know the boat itself as it has no public access to it.

Disappointed not to be able to get on the pier to see the VITAL SPARK. A golden opportunity for Inverary sadly going to waste. A great wee toon and well worth a visit that apart.

We used to fish here and take a picnic. Not now it's in ruins. Such a shMe because Inveraray is such a lovely place the pier lets it down

Had to go across to the pier as soon as we spotted the Vital Spark moored alongside and looking in need of some TLC! Great TV series of the adventures of this little puffer.Unfortunately as it's all a bit sad now

Inverary is situated on the northern shores of Loch Fyne. There were a couple of ships in port, but the pier was closed because it was winter. The actual centre did not appear to be open being out of season.

Inverary is a great little town for easy going walk around shopping and dining. The Maritime center is tiny but exudes history.
