The Ardnadam enclosure is a very significant attraction on the Ardnadam Heritage Trail, as it is an archaeological site that is said to have been in use for more than five thousand years. Vegetation has reclaimed most of the site, but a few structures are still visible, such as the thousand year old ruins of the chapel, what remains of the iron-age house and the posts that have survived of the Neolithic house. The trail then continues on through the beautiful landscape of woods, footbridges and drystone dyke, till hikers find themselves at the foot of a steep slope, which rewards hikers with spectacular views of the Firth of Clyde, Dunoon and Holly Loch. The Ardnadam Heritage Trail covers a distance of three and a half kilometers and the closest locations for refreshment after hiking the trail are Dunoon and Sandbank. For visitors, the Ardnadam Heritage Trail is a wonderful activity to enjoy as a day excursion, as it is not only beautiful, but rich in the heritage of Scotland.
