Inverarary is very pretty conservation town around an hours drive from Carry Farm.  Inverary Castle is the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and his fairytale castle is well worth a visit. Inside, you can view the lavish State Dining Room, the tapestries and the stunning Armoury Hall with its walls adorned with muskets, pole-arms and axes and the surrounding estate also offers some lovely walks.

Inveraray Jail is also in the town and is one of Scotland’s top visitor attractions. It has one of the finest and best-preserved Jail and Courtroom complexes in the world. Explore this unique collection of historic buildings, brought to life by real characters from the Jail’s past. Step back in time and find out what life was like for the men, women and children – some as young as seven – who were tried and locked up here all those years ago.

The Inveraray Bell Tower is just a stone’s throw from the jail. Climb the 176 steps to the top of the tower for stunning views over Inveraray and Loch Fyne to the Arrochar Alps beyond. 

The famous Loch Fyne Oyster restaurant and shop is ten minutes out of Inverarary on your way back to Carry Farm and is a must for seafood lovers.
