Things to do: adventure
Lochgoilhead is a village in the Scottish Highlands in Argyll, Scotland. It is located with the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful areas in Argyll and in Scotland as a whole.LocationThe village is surrounded by several Corbetts in the Arrochar Alps, including Benn Donich, The Brack and Cnoc Coinnich and local waterways are the River Goil and the Donich Water. Controversial planning permission was recently granted for a hydro scheme on the Donich Water which supplies the village water supply.The area has been inhabited for over 10,000 years, with the original name for the area being ‘Kil nam brathairan’ from the Gaelic for ‘Church of the brothers’. There are Neolithic remains in the area, including nearby cup marks and a well-preserved corn kiln. The area is associated with the history of Clan Campbell, who drove the Lamonts from the area in the fourteenth century. Lochgoilhead used to be an important stop on the route between Glasgow and Inverary, as travellers would arrive by boat and continue by coach to St Catherine’s, where they would board a second boat to cross Loch Fyne.Lochgoilhead is situated in the Cowal Peninsula and access to the village is either via the A83 with a turning off the ‘Rest and be Thankful’, or the A815 from Dunoon. Both roads are single track. Travel times from Glasgow are approximately 90 minutes.
