Taynuilt is a village in Argyll and Bute in the Highlands of Scotland. It's on the south shore of Loch Etive, at a point where the loch is pinched, so for centuries it was a ferry crossing. The ferry closed in 1966 when Connel Bridge downstream became the main route north. Taynuilt is set among scenic hills, but the main reasons to visit are two industrial sites: the 18th / 19th century ironworks, and 10 miles east is Cruachan power station deep within the mountain.
From central Scotland by car, follow A85 / A82 through Crianlarich and Tyndrum then west on A85 towards Oban. Citylink Bus 976 runs four times a day from Glasgow Buchanan Street via Tarbet & Arrochar and Inveraray to Taynuilt, taking 2 hours 40 min and continuing to Oban.
