Inveraray

Inveraray is a model village situated near the head of Loch Fyne on the western shore. On the instructions of Archibald Campbell, 3rd Duke of Argyll, the original fishing village was demolished and rebuilt in its present position to make way for Inveraray Castle. As well as the attractive houses on the new Main Street, the Duke had a new parish church built with two parts so that English and Gaelic services could take place side by side.

Until 1975 Inveraray was the administrative centre of the former county of Argyll. It was also the birth place of Neil Munro, the author of the Tales of Para Handy.
