Inveraray, Argyll, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on the town of Inveraray (population 650) in S.W. Scotland, about sixty-five miles N.W.of Glasgow.

Although an interesting destination in its own right, Inveraray provides a good stopping point in trips to/from Oban, Campeltown and Kennacraig ferry terminal (Islay).
