    Lovely visit to the castle. Staff seemed very knowledgeable, all very polite and welcoming. Great to see the rooms and read the very informative text about each room. Particularly interested when I read about some visitors feeling cold in the bedroom and the possible haunting of that room. I had walked in there and remarked to my husband how cold I was suddenly! The gardens were beautiful, loved all the bluebells in the woods. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

    Turned up shortly after it opened. What a gem of a place. Really informative and short and snappy information boards which weren’t too much reading for the children (11&8). Enough gruesome and education for them. Lovely prison guards who had time to give us the history. Bonus is that it’s under the Blue Peter badge scheme.

    I can’t rate Argyll Adventure more highly. Everything is first class. From the ease of booking to the friendliness and professionalism of Annika, Andy and the team. The stables and yard are immaculate and such a setting is hard to beat. Don’t hesitate to book here, you won’t be disappointed.

    We had walked to the Arrichonan Clearance Village (well worth doing) the previous day so chose to come here to learn more about the history of townships in the area.
    We found our visit to be very informative and interesting. The iPad guide allows visitors to glean as much or as little as they wish during their visit. You could easily spend a couple of hours exploring the site. It was particularly fascinating to read about the lives of inhabitants, some of whom had lived there in the 19th century and others who had lived there as recently as the 1960s.
    Staff were very helpful.

    A well signed walk up to the Tower, taking about 45 mins up at a good pace.
    Views from the Tower are amazing. We took a picnic to eat at the top, but shame the peace and quiet was destroyed by someone flying their drone.

    Fantastic gardens but unfortunately we came out of season. Cafe/centre was closed but well routes all signposted so we managed to find our way around. Still a good 1-2hrs walk around the longest path with the dog and the changing scenery and views were great. Even though it was a wet day paths are well maintained and waterfalls and various hill streams were flowing loud.

    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.

    What a place for a war memorial, such a stunning backdrop with the loch, really well maintained surrounded by plenty of grass for those wanting to picnic, alternatively use one of the many benches scattered around, you really can’t miss it either walking or driving by.

    Start in the village of Furnace and follow the red markers.

    It will take you thru forests, near the waterfalls, over a road up in the hills and an ancient road the villagers used to get down to the sea.

    An immediate walk, wear good shoes

    We stopped for a night in Inveraray on our honeymoon and had to visit this amazing little shop. They only stock independent distilleries, so you'll find some really interesting and rare bottles here. Andy was very helpful and friendly.

    We talked for a while about what we were looking for and he helped us find a few bottles to take home with us, pouring us some generous samples along the way. Highly recommend anyone who is even remotely interested in Scotch whisky to visit this shop! I only wish we had a place like this back home.

    Always stop here to look for a whiskey I haven’t tried before. Due to COVID tastings were not available. Knowledgable staff always helpful and friendly.

    They have a tearoom and I ordered a coffee during my short stay there. They also served cakes and other food items. This place is a good choice to grab some refreshments whilst in inveraray.

    I got a guided day out fishing as a birthday present.
    I feel extremely lucky to have chosen Duncan's company. Duncan has been very meticulous in planning the trip as well as very accommodating - I had a couple of additional requests and changed my mind about them a few times... He's also a good - and humorous - communicator, which makes all the difference when trying to fit a trip into a busy schedule.
    Hugh, my guide, was simply outstanding. Exceptionally courteous and attentive, Hugh has an encyclopedic knowledge of fishing and knows every bit of the location chosen. The loch we fished was both stunning and secluded - something I greatly appreciated, as we effectively had the whole loch to ourselves. Hugh displayed an impressive patience in answering a number of questions concerning fishing techniques and issues surrounding conservation. Each answer revealed not just his deep knowledge, but also genuine passion for fishing and nature.
    By the end of the day, I had caught four pikes and a large rainbow.
    I am an experienced fisherman, having fished for some 25 years. I can thus safely say that these guys are truly outstanding at what they are doing. Look no further if you want to experience some of the best fishing in Scotland.

    A small shop packed with every Christmas Decoration you could want and in all colours. A delight to visit and the owner is friendly and helpful.
