    A wonderful experience. The castle and the ground are beautiful. The center room is definitely not to be missed. It has every known medieval weapon decorated on the walls.

    Can’t thank Andy and Annika enough, they were fantastic. Went today with my 12yr old who has been desperate to give it a go but at the same time terrified and anxious! They put her mind at ease and talked her through it. Thanks to Annika who help her relax into to it quickly and she loved it and won’t stop talking about it. Will definitely be back.

    A really great little museum showing crime and punishment in Scotland through the ages.
    I nearly had to get clean nickers when what I thought was a mannequin dressed as a Victorian prison guard moved and turned out to be real! lol.
    Even in the courtroom display one of the mannequins in the crowd seems to be staring at you as you walk in!
    Particularly loved the old horse drawn Black Mariah wagon.
    You won’t be disappointed here. Well worth a visit!

    A huge garden, which is more like an extensive woodland walk around a huge variety of Asian trees, rhododendrons, eucalyptus etc. The garden is organised around a beautiful steep gorge. Many paths are closed due to maintenance, but this does not detract and you can easily walk for an hour on circular routes. The visitor centre / cafe / shop is excellent and the staff are very friendly.

    Auchendrain township is a cluster of homes from the 1800s that was still inhabited in the 1960s. Never cleared, it was preserved after the last resident left. All the buildings are as they were at that time and a fabulous picture of what it was like to be a crofter. When you pay to enter, you are loaned a computer pad with all the waypoints and house numbers marked. You click where you are, and can read a little or a lot about who lived there, what they did, and the housing and farming items you see in front of you. The information is extensive if you want it, surface if you don't. I was here a long time, as I wanted everything.
    Don't trust SatNav when you get close, it may tell you to turn when you should stay straight just as you're arriving. The sign on the road is correct. Big carpark, taciturn but friendly staff. There's lots of stuff you could handle, so watch your kids don't actually break anything. I LOVED the guide pad.

    We were staying in Inveraray, so at dawn one morning I set out for Dun Na Cuaiche while my wife more prudently slept in. From the village, through the castle grounds, up the hill and back to the village, it was 1 1/2 hours round trip at a fairly moderate pace, including a somewhat extended stop at the top to take in the breathtaking view, which was especially so due to a clear, sunny morning. In addition to the view at the top, the walk through the moss and lichen covered woods is beautiful as well. Keep in mind much of the way up is a pretty significant incline, so it's quite a workout, but absolutely worth it!

    A massive tower. It’s a very beautiful building, which is worth the visit if you find yourself in Inveraray, however i wouldn’t travel to visit it. It was closed so i couldn’t go in it but it was lovely from the outside.

  • This is a beautifully carved medieval cross with amazing intricate detail, which sits pride of place in Inverary.
    It's definitely worth having a closer look when passing!

    This is a gift shop that sells a variety of goods including an Art gallery upstairs. You can get a drink here too.
    Was hoping to get a second visit it but sadly that did not materialise.

    Centrepiece of the town, this classical church was designed by Robert Mylne in 1792 to house two congregations, English and Gaelic, each had its own entrance under its own portico. This large double church occupies the centre of Church Square, on the central axis of Main Street. The church has a rectangular plan measuring 28.3 m by 18.5 m. Congregations are divided by a wall 0.65m thick .The Gaelic church was extensively altered in 1913 , and in 1957 was converted to a church hall. A really interesting place that is hard to miss while walking along the streets of Inveraray.
