Welcome to Inveraray ~ Fàilte gu Inbhir Aora

Situated at the northern end of Loch Fyne the Royal Burgh of Inveraray overlooks the loch with its deep waters, sheltered bays and superb onshore facilities. The pier is the seaway to Inveraray, and the town is a gateway to the Highlands & Islands providing an excellent base for day touring and placed within easy access south to the Mull of Kintyre; Oban on the west coast with access to the Islands; north to Glencoe and Fort William and south-east to Loch Lomond and Glasgow.
