Description

With panoramic views across the Firth of Clyde this spacious second floor apartment is situated in a quiet setting, close to the promenade and within walking distance of the town centre. Dunoon is the main town of the Cowal peninsula and the south-western gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, making it an ideal base for those wishing to explore this beautiful area. Local attractions include Castle House Museum and Gardens, the Bishop’s Glen, Dunoon Ceramics and Morag’s Fairy Glen. Take a steamer cruise and explore the hills and lochs of the Cowal Peninsula, or try the abundance of outdoor activities that are on offer which include sailing, sea fishing, windsurfing, fast speed RIB boat tours, quad bikes, clay shooting and more. The Kyles of Bute is a short ferry crossing from Colintraive and the beautiful sandy beach at Kilbride Bay should not be missed. The Arrochar Alps in northern Cowal offer some of the finest hill walking in the Southern Highlands, whilst the Cowal Way and the walks at Kilmun Arboretum and Loch Eckside are highly recommended. The October walking festival, known as Cowalfest is now firmly established as a highlight of the year in the Cowal calendar. There are also cultural and social events to accompany this event, which usually lasts about 10 days, a ’must’ for walkers. The magnificent Benmore Botanic Gardens near Lock Eck are well worth a visit and there is an abundance of wildlife. Dunoon boasts a swimming pool and leisure centre, golf club, tennis, bowling, and an extensive scenic promenade. There are also a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Shop, pub and restaurant 300 yards.

About the local area

As you travel through Argyll, highland Scotland merges with the Scottish lowlands. In the north of the region is the bustling fishing port of Oban. Surrounded by the sweeping mountains of Lorn this is the ideal base from which to tour the Highlands to the north.

The Isle of Mull is only a short ferry trip away. Mull's capital, Tobermory, is instantly recognised by its famous brightly painted buildings. The island has a fascinating history being once home to the Chief of the Clan MacLean and site of the clan's ancient Duart Castle which has spectacular views from its battlements.

South along the coast are the unspoilt glens and bays of Mid-Argyll and Kintyre and the islands of Islay and Jura which are easily reached by ferry. Visit the whitwashed houses of Inveraray and the turreted Inveraray Castle, home to the Dukes of Argyll. Campbelltown in Kintyre was the scene of Viking repulsions at Saddell Abbey and has some lovely beaches nearby.

The captivating Isle of Bute lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, a place of tranquil relaxation with sheltered coves and sandy bays. Ideal for leisurely hiking and easy-going cycling on quiet back roads. Maybe take in the grandeur of Rothesay Castle or Mount Stuart - the House and gardens of the Marquess of Bute.
