Argyll and Bute

A village in the Lorn district of Argyllshire, Taynuilt lies to the south of Loch Etive on the A85 road from Crianlarich to Oban, 6 miles (10 km) southeast of Connel. It developed in association with iron smelting at Bonawe and the building of the military road in the mid-18th century and with the arrival of the railway in 1880. Tourism and the development of the hydro-electric power station at Inverawe enhanced the settlement in the 20th century. There is a 9-hole golf course. Taynuilt also has the earliest monument to Lord Nelson in Britain, erected in 1805 just months after his death.
