Inveraray is a place that when I was child we stopped
at only for a brief period on the way to Campbeltown and
then as an adult my wife's family came from Tarbert Loch
Fyne and again Inveraray became just a stop over.
It is only recently that we visited Inveraray as our
main point of interest. My wife & daughter decided
to visit Inveraray Castle. As we had our dog Nehemiah
with us it meant we had to split up and I am glad we did.
Normally when visiting such places because we have a
dog there is not much to do. When we entered the Castle
grounds I was delighted to see a sign that said please
keep dogs under close control. I hate signs that say all
dogs must be kept on a lead, a properly trained dog does
not need one.
When you arrive in Inveraray you can't help noticing
the Tower on the Hill. Have dog will travel so Tower here
we come. The path is a well maintained zigzag up the hill
towards the Tower. Near the top, still in the forest,
it was a bit boggy and indeed got much worse when the
forest just ended, other than this the path was very good.
For a very reasonable sum you can purchase a map of all
the walks at the Castle Gift Shop.
The Town of Inveraray in itself is well worth a visit
with ample free parking. (A rare thing nowadays)
Doreen & Karen really enjoyed their visit to the Castle
so at the end of the day we were all happy.
