Falls of Lora

The falls of Lora are generated when the tide level in the Firth of Lorn drops below the level of the water in Loch Etive. On the Ebb tide, the seawater in Loch Etive pours out through the narrows which are themselves spanned by the spectacular and historic Connel Bridge. The currents and waves produced by the flood tide are also well worth seeing and paddling. The falls provide excitement for kayakers and divers as well as a stunning sight for tourists and photographers.

If you’ve not yet visited our island you could be in for a special experience. Just 7 miles by car ferry from Oban and a mere 5 minute crossing by passenger ferry from Port Appin, it is one of the most accessible of Argyll islands. Yet despite its accessibility you will feel when you step off the ferry that you’ve arrived in a different world. There is an immediate sense of peace, of having “got away”. Once the ferry traffic has departed, there is little sound but the calling of birds. The air is pure and intoxicating!

Kilchurn Castle

Standing at the head of Loch Awe on what is today a low, rocky mound, but which, in medieval times, was an island, Kilchurn Castle was built, probably, around 1440 by Margaret, wife of Sir Colin Campbell, first Laird of Glenurquhay. The fabric of the Castle is in unusually good order and access is by a ½ mile walk on a rough path. The scale of the construction is vast and extremely interesting. Historic Scotland have built access stairs and it is possible to climb to the highest towers from where the views are breathtaking. It is open every day and until 9pm in the summer. It is also possible to visit the Castle in summer by boat from Loch Awe station.

Isle of Iona

Iona is thought to be the first Christian site in Scotland. As such, this tiny island (1 mile wide, 3.5 miles long), now in the care of the National Trust for Scotland, is very popular with pilgrims and the thousands of tourists who come to visit the Abbey in the summer months. Reached by ferry from Oban, then overland by bus or car on Mull Island, then by passenger-only ferry to Iona. If the area around the Abbey gets too busy for you, then find one of Iona's sandy beaches and relax. The south and western parts of the island are not so well visited, but well worth seeing.
