Inverary Castle is of course home to the Duke and Duchess of Argyle and whilst we had to juggle our viewing of the castle with half of the population of America who turned up on several coaches soon after us (I'm guessing Downton is popular over on that side of the Pond?), it was simply stunning. The gardens were ok, although clearly suffering from a lack of rain. So, after a ...
