Charming Georgian county town Inveraray is a gateway into the Argylls, Highlands & Islands and Loch Lomond. Idyllically situated alongside Loch Fyne, the town has a delightful fairytale feel with its turreted castle, quaint waterfront and wide selection of traditional inns and independent shores. Seafood, namely the Loch Fyne Oysters, are a delicacy here. Sample them in the Loch Fyne Oysters Shop & Restaurant.
A top Scottish attraction, Inveraray Jail & County Court takes visitors on an interactive journey into the crimes, punishments and trials of the past. The jail has achieved some notoriety in recent times for its ghosts – attracting a string of paranormal investigations!
Tour the ‘Rapunzel’ like Inveraray Castle on the outskirts of the town, a Georgian building and historic home of the Campbell family with a 16 acre garden surround and public tours across the summer season. Other highlights include the unique Arctic Penguin triple masted schooner moored at Inveraray Pier, today home to a maritime heritage exhibition and cafe.
