Taynuilt is a real proper highland village with its own grocers, butchers, post office, hairdressers, tea room and hotel.
For the more energetic there is tennis (key of the court from Grahams the grocer), or a quick round of golf at Taynuilt’s 9 hole golf course. It has 2 piers on Loch Etive side and the famous Bonawe Furness, a site of antiquity, the most complete charcoal-fuelled ironworks in Britain that made cannon balls for the battle of Waterloo. The exhibition charts the history of the iron furnace, and the chemistry of iron making.
