Lochgoilhead is a small village situated at the northern end of Loch Goil, a sea loch running into Loch Long.
The settlement developed in the 1750's with the arrival of Steamers in the clyde estuary. Set amidst magnificent west Highland scenery, this picturesque village is now a popular outdoor pursuits and holiday home centre. The ruins of Carrick Castle lie a few miles south of the village. This 15th century fortified tower house is of classic Scottish design and was once the hunting lodge of James IV.
