A HUMBLE HIGHLAND HOME ON THE BANKS OF LOCH LONG: THE COUNTRY OF THE ARGYLLS AND MACFARLANES

A HUMBLE HIGHLAND HOME ON THE BANKS OF LOCH LONG: THE COUNTRY OF THE ARGYLLS AND MACFARLANES

Loch Long, a tentacle of the Firth of Clyde, stretches north-eastwards a little to the west of the converging waters of Loch Lomond. At its head is Arrochar, a beauty spot amid the mountains; on the west side of the loch is Argyllshire, pre-eminently the country of the Campbells, and on the east Dumbartonshire. None of the west coast fiords is longer, deeper or more romantic in its setting than Loch Long. Arrochar itself is the very heart of the Macfarlane country; Carrick Castle, on the west shore, is a ruined stronghold of the Argylls; and at Ardgoil, the peninsula at the upper end, is one of the happiest of modern improvements - the mountain park acquired by Glasgow and known as Argyll's Bowling Green.
