I have had a soft spot for Inveraray since the nineteen seventies. It’s a bit like visiting an old friend - sadly on this occasion one that is not very well. A stream of coaches now disgorge their visitors to the castle and grounds, the...More

Can say nothing about the museum itself, which is closed. There is no access to the puffer or the sailing vessel. The pier is closed and more or less derelict. You can see the vessels from the road, but no closer. Sad really.

Changes with the season and the state of the old boats at its heart. Pretty good this summer, and lovely to see The Vital Spark puffer boat. The pier itself is in need of some TLC so not as user friendly for fishing and wildlife...More

This is a good pit stop when travelling south from the highlands and includes a small town oasis from the hills.

The maritime centre needs refurbishing and make it more accessible to the public. Disappointed that we cannot get and access up close to see the Vital Spark and really came to know the boat itself as it has no public access to it.

Disappointed not to be able to get on the pier to see the VITAL SPARK. A golden opportunity for Inverary sadly going to waste. A great wee toon and well worth a visit that apart.
