Cairndow
Argyll and Bute

The village of Cairndow lies at the mouth of the Kinglas Water as it empties into Loch Fyne in Argyll and Bute. Located 11 miles (17.5 km) east of Inveraray, the village sits near the head of the loch. Originally associated with an inn, Cairndow developed in the 1950s with the creation of the Clachan Hydroelectric scheme. Today the village is noted for the farming of oysters and for the gardens of Ardkinglas.
