Tighnabruaich (Listeni/ˌtnəˈbrəx/; Scottish Gaelic: Taigh na Bruaich) is a village on the Kyles of Bute in Argyll and Bute, Scotland.

Tighnabruaich is promoted as part of "Argyll's Secret Coast",[1] west of Glasgow, and is located along the east coast of Loch Fyne and stretching into the Kyles of Bute.

Tighnabruaich is popular for sailing and yachting and has its own sailing school.[2] Shinty is the major sport, with the village being home to Kyles Athletic who have won more Camanachd Cups than any other team apart from Newtonmore and Kingussie.[3]

Tighnabruaich pier is used by the paddle steamer Waverley. Tighnabruaich also has a Royal National Lifeboat Institution inshore lifeboat station which currently has an Atlantic 85 type lifeboat and tractor on station.

Tighnabruaich was voted "the prettiest village in Argyll, Lomond and Stirlingshire" in 2002.[citation needed]
