Cruising on Loch Linnhe, Scotland.

This evening, I am posting information on Loch Linnhe (pronounced ‘Linnee’) which is located in the Highlands of Scotland running on a S.W./N.E  alignment between Fort William and the Isle of Mull. Total length is about 50km/31 miles. Narrowest point is at the Corran Narrows across which a regular ferry service operates. North of Corran the Loch is only about 2km/1.2miles wide whereas the southern section of the Loch is much wider, opening into the Firth of Lorn and the Atlantic Ocean. In this southern section can be found Castle StalkerDunstaffnage Castle and Dunollie Castle  plus the Scottish Sealife Sanctuary.

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).
