Tighnabruaich is a well known sheltered anchorage with moorings that are always lively with the comings and goings of pleasure boating and yachting craft. One of its highlights must surely be the regular berthing of the famous Waverley, reputed to be the worlds last sea going paddle steamer. Always a sight to behold as she berths at Tighnabruaich pier with day trippers.
The village centre is a comfortable walk and offers a Doctors surgery and local amenities that cater for everyday needs. A bus service runs from Tighnabruaich to both Rothesay and Dunoon.

The area is famous for its dramatic natural scenic beauty; yachtsmen and women the world over sail through the scenic Kyles from the Clyde marinas and on through the Crinan canal and out to the Hebridean islands. A new marina and restaurant complex at Portavadie is 4 miles to the west and offers facilities such as a leisure centre with indoor and outdoor infinity pool and beauty treatment rooms. Portavadie also hosts facilities supporting great mountain bike trails in the area.
