Despite its fine coastal setting the centre of the bustling town of Dunoon is only about 0.9 mile to the north. 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 theatre, cinema, swimming pool and leisure centre.
Glenmorag Crescent is only a few minutes drive from 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 enjoy the feeling of apparent mainland detachment created by the pleasant short ferry crossing.
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, is 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.
Mains water supply, mains drainage, mains gas, gas fired central heating, double glazed throughout.
