Inverary & Loch Lomond

United Kingdom

Posted: Sep 16, 2021 | Updated: Dec 2, 2021

White washed buildings, an old world feel, entertaining local attractions and a stunning spot on the shores of Loch Fyne (also of Loch Fyne restaurant fame of which here there is one) ensure that Inverary is a tourist magnet. If in the area then it is definitely worth a visit. Inverary is an example of 18th century town planning, built by the Duke of Argyll when he revamped his very stately looking castle.

Inverary, a step back in time

Easily done in a day from our base beside Loch Lomond, the main attractions here are the Georgian courthouse and jail, castle and the small shops which tend to focus around whisky and fudge which is no bad thing. The visitor to the jail can work around the cells and learn about the terrible living conditions endured by those captive here. Having said that, it wasn't unheard of for some people to be repeat offenders as the prison offered regular meals which the very poor didn't get outside.

Loch Lomond

With Inverness being the eventual destination, a couple of days around Loch Lomond was the first stop on the route. We stayed at a campsite in Drymen and made several trips from here although it was a little too far from the coast to make a trip to the whisky islands for a spot of sampling worthwhile. Finding this campsite was lucky as with it being peak tourist season finding accommodation was a bit like Mary and Joseph in Bethlehem. A loch side location would have been ideal and the perfect spot was spotted but alas, no room at the inn.

Hi! I’ve been travelling since the 90's and have visited 48 countries - not many really when the world has over 240 countries and states.

I'm lucky in that I live abroad, so for me, even with COVID devastating the world, the travel experience hasn't really gone away. Anyway, I can't wait to share more of my experiences, drop me a message and I'll get back to you ASAP.
