Inveraray, Loch Awe, Lochgilphead and Knapdale

Inveraray is a fine planned town on the shores of Loch Fyne, and a popular destination. It is the largest town in Central Argyll, which takes in most of the shores of saltwater Loch Fyne and freshwater Loch Awe. This is a gentler landscape than further north, with more rounded hills, graceful lochs and vast areas of forestry.

Further south is the Kilmartin Glen. Nowhere in Scotland (or perhaps even Europe) is there a greater concentration of prehistoric remains, from chambered cairns, standing stones and circles to the intriguing cup and ring carvings on rocks. The main town in this area is Lochgilphead on the shores of Loch Fyne. This is the gateway to Knapdale, a very beautiful area of coastal oakwoods and a Caledonian Forest reserve.
