Dunmore House is situated in the coastal ribbon strip settlement of Kirn which lies mid-way between Hunters Quay and Dunoon which is the main town of the Cowal peninsula. Dunmore House is set amid generous and slightly raised gardens from where there are excellent and sometimes dramatic views over the firth of Clyde to the mainland land mass at Cloch & Gourock adjacent.
Dunoon town centre is well established, and it has a good range of shopping, leisure and professional services.
The town has a number of friendly and welcoming pubs and restaurants, as well as a theatre, cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre.
At Dunoon there are both the Caledonian MacBrayne 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. Holiday makers travel to Cowal and experience the feeling of apparent mainland detachment created by the pleasant short ferry crossing.
It is also 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 it has some of the most dramatic and picturesque scenery in the west of Scotland.
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.
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 and wildlife, there are near endless walks, hill climbs and quiet country roads offering wonderful rambling and cycling country
