Ardrishaig is a lochside village at the southern (eastern) entrance to the Crinan Canal in west Scotland, in Argyll. Ardrishaig had 1,283 inhabitants in 2001.

The village is located on the side of a hill bordering Loch Fyne immediately to the south of the town of Lochgilphead. It has a pier, a lighthouse, a couple of pubs, antiques shops and hotels (the popular Grey Gull Hotel being one). Scottish Canals also has an office here.

In the 1970s, the village was significantly altered when the old row of houses and shops on the lochside of the main street were demolished to make way for a car park. Most trading now takes place in its neighbouring town Lochgilphead.
