Inveraray, situated on a loch in Scotland, is a good combination of busy and quiet, even during the summer months, since it’s not too far out of reach, and yet not as popular so as to attract large numbers of tourists to Inveraray hostels.
The bus station in town is quite large, and there are plenty of connections to other cities in Scotland. Driving can be tricky in Scotland, but parking shouldn’t be too difficult in Inveraray. Just keep an eye out. There is a food co-op in town with reasonable prices for food. There are also lots of shops selling typical Scottish must-haves for tourists -- kilts and woolen sweaters and the like.
Inveraray Castle, a highly photographed and beautiful castle, is more like a large mansion. The architecture has combined several different styles from Baroque to Gothic. It’s quite breathtaking and in excellent condition. Check out Inveraray Jail, which was converted into a museum. There are plenty more of these museums, but the Maritime Heritage Museum is a must see. There is an amazing bell tower that is open for public viewing and the bells still ring out their deep tones across the Scottish Loch Fyne. There are some amazing views from the top, and the admission fee is really small and definitely worth it. Also, look out for the Wishing Well -- follow Dalmally road up through town. If you’re in for a taste of whiskey, pay a visit to the Whiskey Shop.
There are several walks in the area -- a decent one is the Dun na Cuaiche. The walk to the monument is not too long, and it’s really scenic. For more leisurely walk, take the circuit walk through the Inveraray Forest, also close to Loch Fyne.
