Discover a world of sights and activities on your doorstep when staying at The Galley of Lorne Inn.

This, in our opinion has to be the most exhaustive list of places to see and activities to do in and around the area and further afield on any hotel’s website. It may take time to digest everything that we have listed in this comprehensive guide, but it will without doubt demonstrate what an excellent strategic location we have for exploring the west coast of Scotland and how committed we are in providing information to our prospective guests and returning ‘Friends of the Galley’. There is nothing better than an informed choice.

From a gentle walk along our peninsula, to seeing the Corryvreckan (the world’s third largest whirlpool) right on our doorstep, to stalking, to a day trip to Mull, Iona and the spectacular Fingal’s Cave on Staffa and much much more, it can all be done with The Galley of Lorne Inn as your base.

Take your time to browse through everything we have compiled for your benefit, but remember we haven’t listed everything, there’s plenty more gems for you to discover and tell us about at the end of the day over a beer!

Informed guests are the happy guests…
