Seaview location in Inverarary, historic cottage within walking distance of town
Mr Iain Fleming
Lovely view. Nice ocean decor. Pleasant back yard. Beautiful walks up the back to the quiet woods. Thoroughly enjoyed Inveraray and area.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review and very much appreciate your kind comments. With regard value for money, only staying 2 nights has an impact. Fixed costs stay the same if staying 2 or 7 nights. Always check prices for longer stays as the nightly price reduces significantly.
Set in parkland on the edge of the town, Inveraray Castle – the seat of the Duke of Argyll – welcomes visitors to tour the castle or the extensive grounds where the river Aray pours down from the hills, past the Castle and into the sea loch. At the right time of year you can watch salmon leap over the falls on their way upstream.
Inveraray played a key role in the Second world war. Troops from all over Scotland, the UK, the USA and other allied nations training for the D-Day landings. Winston Churchill visited the town to see the preparations for himself and had discussions with the USA’s president Eisenhower in the Comrades Hall, which is located just further up the street from Newton Cottage North.
Inveraray’s Highland hinterland offers excellent territory for walking, climbing, cycling, fishing and sailing.
A few miles to the south and west, just beyond the town of Lochgilphead the mysterious Kilmartin Glen contains an astonishing range of carved stones, graves, stone circles, cup and ring carvings and other artefacts dating back to the dark ages.
