Ardrishaig is a village and small port in mid-Argyll on the west-coast of Scotland, situated south of the town Lochgilphead and approximately 30 miles west of Glasgow. During the 19th century Ardrishaig was an active fishing port and noted as an area used for smuggling. The settlement grew from 1801 with the building of the Crinan Canal. Ardrishaig sits at the south-east entrance to the nine mile long Canal linking to the village of Crinan. The waterway was built by John Rennie to cut across the Kintrye Peninsula to ensure steamers and fishing fleets avoided the long trip around the Mull of Kintyre, providing safe access to the north Atlantic and the Hebrides. The village is well-known as the location used for filming the TV series ‘A Mugs Game’ and is a popular tourist resort with hotels, pubs, shops and amenities, antique shop, a beauty salon, a pier and a lighthouse. There are a choice of golf courses in the area including the nine-hole course at Lochgilphead and the Championship course at Machrihanish. Activities include horse-riding and trail-riding, the Mid-Argyll Sports Centre has two tennis court and there is fishing and yachting on Loch Fyne and sailing charters and Sea-fari Adventure available to explore the wildlife and scenery. Festivals include the Cowal Highland Gathering in Dunoon Stadium each August.
