Furnace is a small, but lively, village on the West Coast of Scotland, within the council area of Argyll and Bute . Laying 7 miles south of the Royal Burgh of Inveraray and the iconic Inveraray Castle, it nestles between the A83 and the west coast of spectacular Loch Fyne.
Originally called Inverleacainn, our village was renamed Furnace in the 18th Century where it played an important role in Argyll, and Scotland’s, industrial revolution.
For a small village of 250 people it punches way above its weight, boasting a community-owned, well-stocked and run village store and take-away. A post office operates from within the store, a health centre, a village hall dating back to the late 19th century and a primary school serving the community in and around Furnace.
There is a community run bar open at selected times during the week and various activities in the hall or in and around the area running throughout the year.
