WELCOME TO TAYNUILT
For local history, why not visit Bonawe furnace. Built in 1753, it processed iron ore from the English lake district for 120 years. It is said that cannon balls were made here for the British navy and were fired in the battle of Trafalgar. Indeed, it was in Taynuilt that the first monument was raised by the furnace workers to the memory of Lord Nelson, who fell in the battle. The monument can be seen today on a hill just off the main street.
Inverawe Country Park, Fishery and Smokery is only a 15 minute drive away. Here you can fish in their well stocked lochans , explore the nature trails or just enjoy the produce on sale in the shop and tearoom.
If Golf is your thing,Taynuilt has a fine 9 hole course and for a change there is also a course in Oban and Dalmally.
For local fare, drop into the "Robins Nest" tearoom on the main street for some fine home baking.

For a change take a trip along to Connel, cross over the bridge and enjoy a meal in the Lochnell Hotels conservatory dining room overlooking the bridge and Falls of Lora.
