Old Photograph Glenloin Caravan Site Arrochar Scotland


Old photograph of the Glenloin Caravan site by Arrochar, Scotland. Arrochar is a Scottish village located near the head of Loch Long in Argyll and Bute. Historically in Dunbartonshire, it is overlooked by a group of mountains called the Arrochar Alps. For over five centuries this area, the feudal barony of Arrochar, was held by the chiefs of Clan MacFarlane and before them by their ancestors the barons of Arrochar. The family is Celtic in the male line and native to their Highland homeland of tall peaks and deep lochs just above the waist of Scotland. The settlement was a key target for Viking raiders who took their boats two miles overland to Tarbet to attack the unprotected inland settlements at Loch Lomond before their defeat in 1263 at the battle of Largs.
