Travelling to Lochgilphead

By Road  - 88 miles from Glasgow to Lochgilphead

A scenic hour and a half drive from Glasgow past the shores of Loch Lomond and over the magnificent Rest and Be Thankful, down the western side of beautiful Loch Fyne, brings you to the gateway of this stunning and historic area of Argyll.


The Royal Burgh of Inveraray is the former capital of Argyll and is the home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell. Neil Munro, author of the Para Handy tales, was born in the town in 1863.

A particularly picturesque town, Inveraray provides easy reach to many other tourist attractions. The town’s ceremony rooms are located on an upper floor within a property on Inveraray’s Front Street, with views overlooking the loch. The facilities can accommodate up to 30 people.


Twenty-four miles south of Inveraray on the A83 is the town of Lochgilphead, home to Argyll and Bute Council headquarters based at Kilmory Castle. The castle gardens, home to many rare rhododendrons and unusual trees and plants, offers a stunning backdrop for photographs, as do the nearby Crinan Canal and front green.
