Things to do.


Activities on your doorstep or less than one hour's travel.

The Benmore Gardens, where you can enjoy a stroll along the avenue of giant redwoods, Dunoon, Bute, historic castles and many sea and fresh water lochs. Visit the spectacular Kyles of Bute, as seen on TV.
Numerous scenic forest walks and loch side trails with signposted footpaths, in particular to Carrick Castle on the shores of Loch Goil and through the sprawling Argyll Forest Park area.

There are 3 local golf courses, - Cowal (18 holes) in Dunoon, Innellan, & Blairmore (both 9-hole).

Fishing and sea angling are available locally on Loch Fyne, Loch Eck and nearby rivers for trout, salmon and sea salmon. For those wishing to cruise on Loch Eck, motor or rowing boats are available to hire from the Coylet Inn. In Dunoon there is an excellent new indoor swimming pool.

Around the area lie quaint lochside villages. Further north are Inveraray and Lochgoilhead, with extensive facilities. The Arrochar Alps... gloriously rugged peaks for the more serious hill walker, stand high above Loch Long, looking onto the 'Rest and be Thankful', a fine viewpoint where cattle drovers once enjoyed a well deserved break after a tough climb. To the East, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs - Scotland's first National Park.
