The Back Road - Arrochar


Moving along our trail from Tighness we come to the back road. This ran from Arrochar up to Tyvechtican. Church road currently runs from Church Brae at the Church past the fire station up to the Outdoor Centre on the A83. At the top of the back road is the War Memorial. Half way along is The Steadings - this was once stables where the Duke Of Argyll would keep his horses for the long journeys to and from the Highlands. The Back RoadThe church marks the bottom of The Back Road. this road used to be the main thoroughfare from Tyvechtican to Arrochar.


The Arrochar House Hotel originally had it's driveway from the back road down what is now a dirt track to the hotel car park. The original stone gatepost is still visible where the back toad meets the track to the hotel.
