The Cowal Peninsulas is a delightful part of Scotland, bordered on three sides by stunning sea lochs and to the north by the majestic Arrochar Alps. It has its own fascinating history and unspoiled natural environment. Cowal is peppered by many delightful small communities, all offering something unique while in total contrast, the only town, Dunoon, which is a lively gathering place for the whole community is only a 20 minute drive away. The natural environment of Cowal is superb, it is a beautiful spot to simply relax but it is also the place to find wildlife in abundance, from red squirrels and red deer in the woods to porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks in the sea lochs. There is plenty of bird life enjoying the wide and varied habitats. Outdoor activity is easily found, from sailing & kayaking on the sheltered waters to cycling and walking in the woods. Golf, horse riding and fishing are all available. Cowal is also the place for adventure sports including gorge walking, mountain biking, rock climbing and abseiling as well as quad biking, archery and clay shooting. For anyone who is passionate about food, Cowal offers the best of fresh, local produce, from the seafood caught daily, to the local organic beef, poultry, game, lamb and free range eggs - but it and cook it yourself or have a great night out in a choice of restaurants. A stay at Gairletter Point Cottage provides great access to the sea, with the additional benefit of many activities to choose from to make a perfect holiday for all ages and interests.
