Situation
Kenmore is a small hamlet approximately 3 miles South of Inveraray and is accessed via a forestry road which leads to the secluded setting where there are only a handful of houses, which enjoy spectacular views up and down the length and breadth of Loch Fyne.

Kenmore was established as a model fishing village built for the Fifth Duke of Argyll around 1771, with the six cottages surrounding a central green. This survives today with the individual owners maintaining the historic lawned green adjacent to their cottage.

Inveraray itself is a classic 18th century planned town that was built on the site of an earlier fishing village by the 3rd Duke of Argyll. The town is known as the western gateway to the Highlands and Islands. There are a good range of local shops and provisions stores including a mid-size co-op. There are also a number of boutique type specialist shops, cafés and restaurants including the Samphire Seafood restaurant which sells mainly locally sourced produce. The George Hotel has always drawn people to the area and has an enviable reputation for providing award winning food and drink as well as hosting regular live entertainment at the weekends. Loch Fyne Oysters is also a destination eatery located to the north of the town at the head of Loch Fyne.

Glasgow, about 66 miles away, offers a full range of higher and further education services, as well as all the cultural and professional services normally connected with a major city. The A83 and A82 offer swift access to central Scotland with the closest rail link at Arrochar (25.1 miles) providing access to the main west coast line to Glasgow. Inveraray is also served by a bus service offering daily direct connections to Glasgow and to Campbeltown on the Mull of Kintyre; and daily to Oban.

The locality of Loch Fyne-side offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits, the forest tracks around Salean and Danquarts offer lovely country walks and safe off-road cycle routes. Inveraray has a 9-hole golf course, the nearest 18-hole course is at Lochgilphead.

Mid-Argyll presents some of the most dramatic seascapes and landscapes on the West Coast of Scotland. Sea, river and loch fishing is easily available, as are a number of organised private and commercial low ground shoots as well as deer-stalking. There are excellent opportunities for boating/yachting and sea fishing on Loch Fyne, leading not only to the Clyde estuary but also to the Crinan Canal across the Mull of Kintyre to the Hebrides and the Atlantic.
