Let this guide take you through the history of the Bonawe Historic Iron Furnace.

Set in near the River Awe, in the heart of Argyll's rich woodland, this furnace employed around 600 workers in its heyday.

Bonawe ran for 123 years. The building has been wonderfully preserved and serves as a great monument to hardworking locals during the Industrial Revolution.

This official souvenir guide examines the history of the furnace, bringing tales of this hard and unforgiving work to life.
