Located on the scenic Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, 49 Kilbride Road is only a short drive from both the Caledonian MacBrayne and Western Ferry 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.
The area is renowned for its spectacular scenery and there are near endless walks, hill climbs and quiet country roads offering wonderful rambling and cycling country. The Bishops Glen walk is close by and allows for a pleasant walk around the local beauty spot of the Bishops reservoir. For children, the West Bay play park is a few hundred yards away on the coastal promenade.
As with most parts of Scotland, one is never too far from a golf course and Dunoon is no exception – Cowal Golf Course being the closest at only 2 miles away from the property.
The expanding Holy Loch Marina is nearby with its berthing and associated chandlery services, an excellent base from which to sail and explore the lower Clyde and the world famous Kyles of Bute with its inland sea lochs and scenic 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.
