The centre of the bustling town of Dunoon is only a short drive to the south. Dunoon is the main town of the Cowal Peninsula and has a complete range of shopping, leisure and professional services. The town has a good range of welcoming pubs and restaurants, a library, hospital, secondary school, theatre, cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre. There is a primary school in Sandbank.

Located on the scenic Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, 2 Southern Beeches is only a short drive from both the Caledonian McBrayne and Western Ferries terminals from where there are frequent passenger and vehicular sailings across to Gourock. From here, the road and public transport links make it possible to commute on a daily basis to Glasgow and the central belt.
It is equally possible to drive to Glasgow via Loch Lomond which takes a little longer but is via some of the most famous and breathtaking countryside in western Scotland.
Dunoon is the gateway to the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and can easily be described as having some of the most dramatic and picturesque scenery in the west of Scotland, it is indeed an outdoor enthusiasts playground.
As with most parts of Scotland, one is never too far from a golf course and Dunoon is no exception – the district having three challenging courses.
The expanding Holy Loch Marina is nearby with its berthing and associated chandlery services, an excellent base from which to sail and explore the world famous lower Clyde and Kyles of Bute inland sea lochs and waterways.
Sea fishing is available on the Firth of Clyde and it is possible to fish for salmon and sea trout by permit on some of the rivers and lochs of the district, with the River Eachaig, the freshwater Loch Eck only a few minutes drive to the north.
Some of the local estates can, by arrangement, offer rough and commercial shooting as well as opportunities to stalk for roe, sika and red deer.
The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery. Benmore Botanic Garden is only five miles away and there are near endless walks, hill climbs and quiet country roads offering wonderful rambling and cycling country.
