A Piece of History   

If you have ever wondered why our Bar & Bistro is called MacPhunn's, it is named after half hung Archie MacPhunn and the local story goes…

Some centuries ago MacPhunn of Drip, a local laird of ancient lineage, fell on evil times and took to stealing sheep.

For this he was carried off to Inveraray and hanged and his widow invited to come and collect his corpse. Half way across Loch Fyne she thought she saw him move and, mixing some of her own milk (she was nursing a baby) with some whisky, forced it between his lips. At this MacPhunn sat up and, not long after, landed as good as new at the cairn which bears his name a few hundred yards from The Creggans Inn. By law he could not be hanged twice and so he lived happily for many more years and now lies buried in Strachur churchyard

And it's not just the Bar & Bistro named after him, Sir Fitzroy MacLean the famous previous owner of The Creggans bottled a Single Malt Whisky in honour of MacPhunn. You can read the full story here
