Ardlui  Dunbartonshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Ardlui like this:

Ardlui, a locality in Arrochar parish, Dumbartonshire, at the influx of Falloch Water to the head of Loch Lomond, 8 miles N of Tarbet. It has an hotel and a small pier where the Loch Lomond steamers lie; and it communicates by coach with Crianlarich station. The tract around it is a small expanse of rich low strath; the hills around it are covered with foliage, and streaked with torrents or waterfalls; the mountains in the distance sweep round the horizon, in a curving series of alpine peaks; and the whole scene is a most diversified, picturesque, sublime amphitheatre. ...

Ardlui House stands near the water, and is a recent erection.
