  • A commanding position, but you have to use a lot more imagination than usual because there isn't much left. However it is free and you can take a quick look around if you are early for your ferry.
  • Beautiful, overlooking village & harbour & Loch Fyne. Stunning views. Start of the Kintyre Trail - path about 40 miles all the way down the peninsula, with lots of stop off points & b+bs en route.
  • Short walk uphill to a small ruined castle, cute to look at and some interesting history. The best thing about it is definitely the views though, absolutely stunning.
  • Wonderful views of harbour. Extensive information on castle
  • Some nice views over the city- shame about the bricks that have been used in repairs- bit of an eyesore!
