    Lochgoilhead near Inveraray

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the way to Inveraray there is a worthwhile side trip to Lochgoilhead, which is a 12 mile return journey on a single track road (one lane road with 2 way traffic!) Part of the attraction is the journey which is amazing. It feels very remote and will test your driving skills but drive slowly and obey the rules of using passing places and you should be okay. Lochgoilhead may seem a bit of a letdown at first, but there are attractions. There is a large holiday chalet park with a hotel, Drimsynie, at its centre, complete with swimming pool, golf courses, and restaurants. The village itself is worth a wander around, and then walk past the shops and along the private road known locally as Millionaires' Row. This is a very interesting walk and has beautiful views and some fine old Victorian houses, in various states of repair. It is no longer as prosperous as it once was, but is still amazing to see what people built as luxury homes and the gardens, many of which are still a flower lovers paradise.

    Single Track roads

    If you care for a driving adventure with some wonderful scenery then take the single track road at the end of Glen Lomond (there is a car park there overlooking the breathtaking glen). This single track road will take you the back way to Inveraray. It offers glorious views of the mountains and is a nice drive. The locals frequent the road but other than that not much traffic and there are numerous spots to pull over to allow the cars to pass each other.
