St Conan's Kirk
Seeming to rise out of the inky depths of Loch Awe, at first glance St Conan’s Kirk looks like something out of a medieval fairy tale. But a closer look reveals that the church is actually a melange of architectural styles, a mishmash of Roman, Norman, Renaissance and modern. And just who would come up with such a curious idea? Well, you'll find out on a guided tour of this stunning church. Explore this fascinating piece of architecture and history, and drop in the small cafe and gift shop.
Falls of Lora and Connel Bridge
Loch Etive reaches the sea at Connel, Gaelic for the “White Dogs”, at the Falls of Lora, where they roil and foam as if by magic under the impressive cantilever bridge that, when built for the railroad, was the second longest spanning railroad bridge in Britain, second only to the Forth Bridge.
Price is £275, does not include castle entrance of £7/5.50 per person.
