    The memorial in the form of a lone kilted soldier stands proudly with his back to the Loch looking directly towards the town. He has a strange expression on his face which looks both peaceful and haunting at the same time. Constructed in bronze by an anonymous artist, the statue was dedicated to the men of Inveraray and its surrounding area who fought and died during the second world war. The soldier probably belonged to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders division of the British Army, the regiment my Grand Father belonged to. Sadly today all the Scottish regiments have been brought together in one single regiment.The Royal Regiment of Scotland click here to find out who they are lest you forget a good tribute

    Little streets with few houses

    Little Streets

    Old Scottish Housing was known as a room & kitchen. This included a small scullery (kitchen) living room with pull down bed & bedroom. If you were lucky you had an inside loo or unlucky a cludgie in the yard. The houses were not known as streets but rows.

    Hoist yer Granny

    Argyll is surrounded by water = sea lochs - sea - & lots of sea inlets so it is no surprise to find boats featuring prominently here. The boat in the picture is now a floating museum chartering the history of steam ships in the area. The local name for steam ships is Puffer.
