A Guide to Inveraray

Welcome to Inveraray where you will find the very best of Scotland. It is the traditional county town of Argyll and ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, who founded the town in 1745, alongside his new dwelling, Inveraray Castle.

Much of the town, including the church, was designed and built by the Edinburgh-born architect Robert Mylne between 1772 and 1800.

There is lots to do and see in Inveraray, the gateway to the Highlands and Islands. It offers access to national parks, mountains, glorious gardens and beautiful islands.

There is a massive choice of historic sites including castles and monuments where stories of Scotland's turbulent past will entertain you. Take to the seas for breath-taking seascapes and marine life including porpoises and dolphins. You can even visit Inveraray's famous Loch Fyne Whisky Shop and taste our national drink.

For short breaks or longer holidays, this guide will help you find accommodation, places to eat, attractions and detail key events.

For hundred's of years Inveraray has been a popular visitor destination, isn't time you visited?
