Bonawe Iron Furnace
Connel & Taynuilt
Bonawe Iron Furnace is one of the region’s most unusual historical sights. Near Taynuilt, and dating from 1753, it was built by an iron-smelting company from the English Lake District because of the abundance of birchwood in the area. The wood was made into the charcoal that was needed for smelting the iron.
