Kilmun Pier

Lying on the north shore of the Holy Loch is the small village of Kilmun; the pier was built by David Napier who was famous for constructing the boiler for the paddle steamer Comet.

The pier was built along with a hotel in 1827 for the purpose of transporting passengers to Inveraray.

Although the pier closed officially in 1971 it is still used by Western Ferries as an overnight berth for their ferries.
