The George Hotel is situated at the end of the main street of Inveraray. Inveraray is a beautiful historic village located on the Scottish shore of Loch Fyne. The population is less than that of Loch Lomond, but at the same time you´re just an hour away from Glasgow. It is a lovely and convenient place. To begin with, the George was just a couple of private houses built in 1770. With the construction of the neighboring castle, a village developed, commissioned by the Duke of Argyll. It is one of the first planned cities of Scotland. The ground floor was a chapel, and it is now a bar. In the year 1860, the two houses joined together to form the George Hotel, managed by the Clark family. It is the seventh generation of Clark who runs the hotel today. The rooms are very nice with a cozy traditional decor, some have a fireplace or a jacuzzi for a truly special stay. The walls are wood or antique fabrics. A double room costs 70 pounds per night, the deluxe which sleeps four people 130 pounds. Includes breakfast.
The Argyll Hotel is an old traditional pub and restaurant that is located on Front Street, right in the center of the town of Inveraray. It is a very harmonious place because everything was built during the Georgian era, ie mid-18th Century. The village is one of the most popular tourist destinations to be found near Glasgow. The Argyll Hotel is located opposite the Loch Fyne, a salt lake where people from the village go to swim. The rooms are old style, as the hotel is more than 250 years old. It has an incredible charm, but also some details are quite old. Most rooms have a shower, some a bathroom. All have heated water for tea and coffee, wireless internet, a TV, and are non-smoking. Some have good views of Loch Fyne. The cost for a double room is between 35 and 80 pounds per night in low season and between 39 and 79 in high season. This depends on the type of room you request and also if you book in advance.
Close to Loch Lomond and Inveraray Castle near the castle, this bed and breakfast is located in Furnace, a village with only about fifteen buildings, including the pub, which seems to be the only source of entertainment for the people of Furnace. During our visit to Scotland, we primarily stayed in B & B's in the country, and each village - however small it may be - has a pub!
Maggie's B & B is run by a great lady named Maggie who is very friendly and talkative, who served us a hearty Scottish breakfast in the dining room overlooking Loch! We spent the night in a very nice double room which had a beautiful view of the Loch! We booked that room through Information Point, but you can also book directly from the website. I highly recommend this hotel if you're staying in the area.
