Arrochar sits between mountains which lead down into the sea of Loch Long and is an excellent base for enjoying the great outdoors. Loch Long was a torpedo testing site, particularly during WWII; a pier on the West shore was used by the Royal Navy between 1912 and 1986, and there are still some naval bases in the area.
The region is very popular with mountain climbers and walkers since it's so close to the Arrochar Alps and the Argyll Forest Park. The delights of Inverary, Oban and even Fort William are easily accessible on a day out, with the bigger cities of Glasgow and Stirling about an hour's drive away.
The village itself boasts a range of local crafts by way of art, pottery and jewellery. There's a grocery store and several pubs and restaurants offering good food and live entertainment.
