About our Home

Our cottage has 2 bedrooms and is a one minute walk from the beach and a ten minute walk from the centre of town, in the picturesque coastal town of Dunoon.

Dunoon is situated on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll in the west of Scotland. It sits on the Firth of Clyde to the south of Holy Loch and to the west of Gourock. It is very easily accessible from both Glasgow (23 miles) and Edinburgh (52 miles) by train and has the best of both worlds - picturesque coastal setting surrounded by countryside and close to the town centre.

You cross from Gourock (30 min direct train from Glasgow airport) to Dunoon (20 min car/passenger ferry ride) - the ferry trip across the Firth of Clyde is breathtaking - to the north the mountains surrounding the sealochs of Long and Goil provide a stunning backdrop as the ferry arrives at the quaint Scottish town of Dunoon.
