Full Day Inveraray & Loch Awe Tour
From stunning castles and quirky kirks to lovely lochs and legendary mountains, this tour oozes history, architecture and stunning scenery, with plenty of photo opps and a gastropub meal with hospitality and a view that can’t be beat.
St Conan’s Kirk
Seeming to rise out of the inky depths of Loch Awe, at first glance St Conan’s looks like something out of a medieval fairy tale. But a closer look reveals that the church is actually a melange of architectural styles, a mishmash of Roman, Norman, Renaissance and modern.
Inveraray and Castle
Along scenic Loch Fyne lies the striking whitewashed town of Inveraray, built by the 3rd Duke of Argyll in the 1700s. The town’s biggest attraction is Inveraray Castle, the living home of the Duke and Duchess of Argyll, Inveraray Castle is one of the most beautiful castles in the west of Scotland. It boasts fairy tale turrets and a magical setting at the heart of the historic Argyll Estates. Used as a location for the filming of Downton Abbey, the castle and gardens are open for tours, where visitors can see a huge collection of historic weaponry and artefacts related to the duchy.
This 15th century beauty commands a spot on a peninsula in Loch Awe. Explore the impressive ruins (seasonal) and take one of the most fantastic views in Argyll.
Bonawe Iron Furnace or Dunstaffnage Castle
If time allows, we'll stop at one of these fantastic sites that will let you see how everyone from clan chiefs to ordinary folk lived from the Middle Ages through the 18th century.
