Ideal EU holiday destination/base!
About Our Home
Our lovely holiday cottage has 2 bedrooms and is a one minute walk from the beach and a ten minute walk from the centre of town. Dunoon is situated on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll in the west of Scotland. It sits on the Firth of Clyde to the south of Holy Loch and to the west of Gourock. It is very easily accessible from both Glasgow (35 miles) and Edinburgh (82 miles) by train. The Cowal Peninsula is an area of outstanding scenic beauty and cultural heritage. Please see the website (link replaced) for more information, maps etc. and the link (link replaced) for a map of the surrounding area, including the ferry route in visual form from Gourock to Dunoon. Dunoon is Cowal's principal community and grew in the late 1800s to cater for the visitor. Today it boasts a range of hotels, shops and eating places, with something for every taste and every pocket. Built around two sheltered bays, Dunoon is the home of the world's premier highland games, the Cowal Gathering and offers a range of sporting activities including golf, fishing, mountain-biking and ,of course, sailing and other water-based sports. The various pleasure cruises available offer the ideal way to sit back and enjoy the coastal scenery. Dunoon is also the seaboard gateway to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park - the first National Park in Scotland.
