Area

The Estate
The estate is devoted mainly to a sheep farm with some woodland. There are three miles of coastline, nearly all of which is only accessible on foot. Guests are free to explore wherever they want with walking to suit all abilities.

Inver Cottage Restaurant, which is owned by the castle's family, is a pleasant 15 minute walk away, facing the old castle. It serves morning coffees, lunches, teas and evening meals. Decorated in a warm New England style, it has a varied menu featuring lots of local produce. Children are catered for with their own home cooked menu. Go and have coffee and see what you think!

Castle Lachlan

Location
The castle is on the east side of Loch Fyne on the B8000, about 6 miles south of Strachur and close to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Strathlachlan itself is a quiet backwater, but is within easy reach of Inveraray, Bute, Loch Lomond and Dunoon. The drive down the lochside to Tighnabruaich must be one of the most beautiful in Scotland.

Dunoon
Dunoon has all the essential shops. There is a cinema, swimming pool and golf course. Try Chatters, next to Somerfield, for lunch.

At Benmore, just outside Dunoon, are the Younger Botanic Gardens. They are part of the National Botanic Collection and are spectacular in May and June, when the rhododendrons and azaleas are in bloom. At other times of the year there is still plenty to see.

Castle Lachlan

Bute
Bute is a short drive followed by a very short ferry crossing away. Rothesay, again, has all the essential shops, plus a supermarket. There are three golf courses on the island together with Mount Stuart, home to the Marquis of Bute, some lovely deserted beaches and a great circular drive round the island.

Inverary
Nearby there are 3 nine hole and one eighteen hole golf course, Cowal Golf Club, within 30 minutes' drive. Kyles of Bute Golf Club near Tighnabruaich is the most notable with its spectacular views. Bute, which is only a short drive and ferry ride away, is home to a further 3 courses.

Castle Lachlan

Loch Lomond
Loch Lomond is about 35 minutes' drive away. Cruise Loch Lomond from Tarbet at the northern end and shop Loch Lomond at Lomond Shores, the 'gateway' to the Loch Lomond National Park at the south.
