Come and Visit

When you visit Lachlan Bay there is not only the Old Castle to see. There is lovely Strathlachlan church, a Georgian gem, and Kilmorie Chapel, the resting place of the Maclachlan clan chiefs and one of the few remaining medieval church buildings in the West of Scotland.


The new paths to Kilmorie Chapel and the Old Castle make an easy wander for most walking abilities. There are also further coastal paths and bays to explore, teeming with wildlife and offering spectacular views of Loch Fyne. They ramble towards the hillside site of an ancient settlement and the ruins of Kilbride chapel. Everyone can enjoy a bracing walk or tranquil rest by the loch, escaping from perhaps busy and stressful lives and feeling part of the natural world.

Walking Trail at Lachlan Bay

Children's Explorer Trail

Each year the local church leads a walk a little further afield, past the castle and over the hill to the ruins of Kilbride Chapel.  An article written by Rev Robin McKenzie and published in the Clan Maclachlan Magazine about this walk is available through the link below.

Inver Restaurant

At the start or finish for a day's visit to Lachlan Bay is Inver restaurant, one of the best loved restaurants in Argyll. Recently under new management, this modern restuarant specialises in using locally sourced ingredients and their own produce.  

There are spectacular views of both old and new castles and the loch from the restaurant where you can enjoy morning coffee, a meal or a beer in the sun.
