There is a large natural mussel bed you can walk to on the low tide and a shrimping net will always provide a delicious appetiser for any meal.
The islands of Bute and Arran are nearby and the 7 mile drive to the villages of Tighnabruaich and Kames, overlooking the Kyles of Bute and with views to Arran, the Kintyre Peninsula and back to Ayrshire on the mainland must be one of most spectacular anywhere in the UK.
Dunoon, which has many shops, restaurants etc is half an hour away, [with a regular bus service] and there are many excellent local restaurants, serving delicious local fare, perhaps the most famous of which is the original Loch Fyne Oyster Bar, some 35 minutes drive away. [See Activities]
With the stunning scenery and the ever changing seasonal colours, the Cowal Peninsula is home to a great many artists, and local galleries give the art lover a wonderful choice to explore. Every October, there is a festival of local arts, The Cowal Fest,[see Activities] which brings visitors from far and wide to the area.
The autumn also sees every year the Dunoon Highland Games
which are famous for Scottish dancing championships, pipe bands and all sorts of traditional highland activities.
The cottages are also ideally placed for walkers wanting to explore the outstanding Cowal Way [see Activities].
