Scenic, Historic and Cultural Attractions
Whilst we benefit from a delightful secluded location in 240 acres of private grounds, Ardanaiseig is an ideal base from which to explore the many historic, scenic and cultural treasures of Argyll. With Oban and the Islands to West, Inverary to the South, Crianlarich to the East and Fort William to the North, and a wealth of tourist attractions in between, visitors to Ardanaiseig are never short of things to do. Below are just a few suggestions.
Scenic and historic sites of interest:
- Ardchattan Priory
Auchindrain Township Open Air Museum, by Inveraray
Bonawe Iron Furnace, Taynuilt
Castle Stalker, Loch Linnhe
Cruachan Reservoir & Hollow Mountain Power Station
Fort William – site of Ben Nevis, Inverlochy Castle and the Jacobite (Harry Potter) Steam Train
Glencoe village & Visitor Centre
Inveraray - with its Castle and Jail
James of the Glen Monument, by Ballachulish
Oban - the Gateway to the Isles and home of Oban Whisky
Torosay Castle and Gardens, Craignure, Isle of Mull
Whether you choose to visit the local sites independently, or in the company of our touring partner Lord Andrew Gray, a trip to the mysterious Kilchurn Castle on Loch Awe (pictured) is highly recommended. It is particularly magical to approach the castle by steam boat from Lochawe pier.
