Ardlui is a picturesque village at the top of Loch Lomond approximately 12 miles from Tarbet along the A82. Ardlui, Loch Lomond

Ardlui shows evidence of wild lawless days lying at the boundary of the ancient kingdoms of Strathclyde, Dalriada and Pictland battles and clashes must have been common in this area. Clach na Bhreatuinn, Stone of The Briton, marks the scene of a great battle between the Briton and the Western Scots in the year 717.  More evidence of this is the stone burial cairn in the field below Stuckendroin - it creates an intriguing atmosphere of what may have gone on in these dark days.

Nestled at the bottom of Glenfalloch, which in the Macfarlane days was the boundary of the barony of Arrochar on the north, the glen created a natural pass for the people of Atholl onto Arrochar on their way to the lower grounds in Monteith and Stirling. This would have been a natural battle field for the MacFarlanes and those who tried to use it. Other areas of interest include On the Eilean–a-vow, Alms House, Pulpit Rock and the Pier.
