Argyll Coastal Route

Follow the A83 south from Inveraray to Auchindrain, a living museum and Scotland’s last inhabited Highland farming township. 

Come and see how life once was for people before the Highland Clearances and take a self-guided tour of Auchindrain, which is still a working farm where you can meet free-range chickens, sheep and Highland cows, as well as the township's cat, Cat Liath. 

You can also follow a circular walk between Auchindrain and the village of Furnace, or continue driving south to Crarae Garden, which is home to an impressive collection of beech trees.
