View of Loch Fyne Inveraray

As the traditional county town of Argyll, Inveraray overlooks the waters of Loch Fyne and whilst there's much to do in the village itself, there's a lot to explore and discover in the area around the loch and further afield, making Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa an excellent base for those who wish to day tour before returning to recharge following a days adventures. To the south, lies the Crinan Canal and the rugged coast and beaches of the Mull of Kintyre, whilst to the west and north, mountains and lochs lead the way to Oban which is in easy reach as the gateway to the Islands off the west coast of Scotland.
