Visit Inveraray - the Gateway to Argyll
Touring from Inveraray

Inveraray provides an excellent hub for touring in Argyll.

OBAN is only 38 miles (61 km) away, which takes less than an hour.

On the way you will pass the magnificent views over Loch Awe with its many islands and visit Cruachan power station which is carved inside the hill.

CruachanCruachan Power Station - (19.9 miles (32 km) about 29 minutes)

The Hollow Mountain

Hidden deep within the mountain of Ben Cruachan on the shores of Loch awe is Cruachan Power Station, a power station buried one kilometre below the ground.
At its centre lies a massive cavern, high enough to house the Tower of London! Here enormous turbines convert the power of water into electricity, available to you in your home at the flick of a switch.

The hollow mountain is a place like no other. An underground world on a spectacular scale.
