Ardlui is famed for its superb walking routes around Loch Lomond, which attracts many visitors to the area. A ferry route is also operational to take travellers across the Loch to join up with the West Highland Way. The village also has its very own marina offering various facilities for boaters, including berthing facilities, a slipway and boat sales.
The Ardlui Marina is the ideal location from which to explore the real Loch Lomond; steeped in history and myth and dotted with myriad mysterious and charming islands.
Built in the early 1800’s as the hunting residence of the Colquhoun family, the Ardlui Hotel is a beautiful tribute to its Scottish heritage and history, nestling as it does on a hillside by the loch. First opened as a hotel in 1886,
The renowned Drover’s Inn – Rob Roy’s local, apparently! is located in nearby Inverarnan.
The Fallach Falls near Inverarnan is on the A82 north of Ardlui and 3km past the Drovers Inn. A wee dip in the ice cold water has cured many a hangover and legend has it that even the great Rob Roy shook off the excesses of the night before at the Falls.
