During our trip to Scotland, we took an unexpected turn on to the Inveraray, on the way to Oban. On my google search on what to do in Oban- I found a link to Live Inveraray Jail and thought it might be interesting. I told Asho, let’s take a little diversion and check out this place.

It was an accidental visit, and I am glad that happened. As soon as we reached Inverary, my first reaction was “Wow”. Am In a wonderland πŸ™‚ The castle, the loch front, cottages, bridges, everything looked beautiful.

Inveraray is a small town in Argyll and Bute, on the shore of Loch Fyne. Duke of Argyll founded this town, alongside his Inveraray Castle. The town was designed and built by the Edinburgh-born architect Robert Mylne between 1772 and 1800.

Whether you are looking for a day picnic, adventures or just a sun soaked afternoonΒ (rare are such days πŸ™‚ ) near the Loch, it is definitely a place to be. Quaint and quiet in its own way. Breath-taking views sweeping across a wide landscapes & seascapes, it is a treat to eyes.

Few pictures from the trip, taken on my iPhone so might come dark at few places. We had a good day, a mixture of thick clouds and few sunny intervals. I am glad it did not rain πŸ™‚

  1. I think those kinds of discoveries are the best of all! The place is simply beautiful, the old castle jail and the town. Look at all those white buildings that look alike! It’s quite a sight.

    I have had such a full summer with the move and working and well…you know, *summertime!* that I have fallen far behind in my blogs that I read. I will catch up! Know that I have been thinking of you and Ash, and wanting to share more of your adventures.

    • Isn’t it πŸ™‚ Exactly those white similar looking buildings looked more stunning in reality. It was like a fairyland right from a movie. very exciting places with a lot of history. You could feel the 17th century Scotland there.

      Do not worry falling behind the blog posts, I am in a similar situation. With house moving and parents visiting us for the first time in the UK, last few months have been busy taking them around and having an internet free family time πŸ™‚

      I am so glad to know you keep me & Ash in memories, and the feeling is mutual πŸ™‚

      Loads of Love
