Overlooking the still waters of Loch Fyne, Inveraray is a traditional county town in Argyll. Established in 1745 by the 3rd Duke of Argyll, head of the powerful Clan Campbell, the town is an absolute set piece of Scottish Georgian architecture. Key buildings that are worth visiting include the neoclassical church, and Inveraray Jail and courthouse, now an award-winning museum that graphically recounts prison conditions from medieval times up until the 19th century. A short walk north of the New Town, the neo-Gothic Inveraray Castle remains the family home of the Dukes of Argyll. There are also the usual choice of great shops, bars and restaurants to explore and maybe enjoy a ‘wee dram’?

With a diverse culinary scene, abundance of pubs and bars as well as some of the UK's best music venues, this is the city for the the living!
The Riverside Museum
Glasgow is also home to some of the world’s finest transport in the Riverside Museum. Sitting on the banks of the River Clyde the museum is home to over 3000 objects which all showcase Glasgow’s rich past. Transport yourself to a different time as you walk down a reconstructed cobbled street with shops dating from 1895-1980s and discover a past Glasgow.
