Lochgilphead

The picturesque coastal town of Lochgilphead, located in the heart of Argyll and Bute, occupies a lovely loch-side location and provides an excellent base for exploring this beautiful corner of the region.

Sitting on the shores of Loch Gilp, which itself sits at the head of the magnificent Loch Fyne, Lochgilphead is a town of great character. First built in the 18th century, Lochgilphead town centre has a fine array of shops, many of which are located within whitewashed stone buildings that typify the town. History lovers will find plenty to occupy themselves within the town and the surrounding area, including Carnassarie Castle. This impressive monument is just a short, 15 minute drive away and boasts some excellent views. Meanwhile, the Kilmartin Museum offers fascinating insights into the ancient history of this area of Scotland.

Approximately 25 miles from Lochgilphead lies one of the most must-see attractions in western Scotland; Inveraray Castle. The ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, this magnificent building on the shores of Loch Fyne is full of historic treasures and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. A secluded woodland walk is also nearby and visitors will find tearooms and an excellent gift shop, making Inveraray Castle a great day out for all the family.

    Castle Lachlan is a beautiful Scottish baronial house set within the Strathlachlan Estate, which has 1500 acres of land and provides a stunning view down to Loch Fyne and Lachlan Bay.  The Castle is the home of the Clan MacLachlan and the owner, Euan MacLachlan is the 25th Clan Chief. The ruins of Old Castle Lachlan can still be found on the shore of Loch Fyne. It was the Clan home until bombarded from the sea in 1746 by an English warship following the defeat of the Jacobites at the Battle of Culloden. This was retribution against the MacLachlans for joining the unsuccessful rebellion.  Lachlan MacLachlan, the Chief, ADC to Bonnie Prince Charlie, was killed in the battle.  The New Castle started life as a Queen Anne style house at the end of the 18th century.  Then at the end of the 19th century the Scottish baronial transformation was undertaken. It has now been cleverly divided so that the grander southwest facing front is now available for self-catering holidays.  The accommodation is spread over four floors with the kitchen, playroom and shower room on the ground floor.  The first floor has the main living area with drawing room, dining room leading to a billiard room with full sized table; all first-floor rooms have the benefit of a sea view.  The second floor has four bedrooms, all except one have a sea view; the master bedroom has an en-suite and dressing room.  The third attic floor has the remaining three bedrooms, with a single bedroom positioned within the Tower.  The Estate is mainly sheep farming with some woodland.  There are three miles of coastline, nearly all of which is only accessible on foot.  Many different levels of walks are available locally from gentle strolls to more adventurous trails.  The gardens have a tennis court which is available for use by guests.  Seasonal sporting activities are available locally, booking essential.  Clay pigeon shooting and quad bike safaris can also be arranged. The family also owns the Inver Cottage Restaurant which is only a 15 minute walk away providing food throughout the day and evening. A village shop and petrol station can be found in Strachur, only 6 miles away.  Strathlachlan is a great location to explore.
