Situated just a number of yards from the seashore, this detached, single-storey cottage is located adjacent to the owner’s home close to the village of Innellan, and is within walking distance of a local shop and two pubs serving fine food. There is also a golf course and tennis courts within the village.
Innellan serves as an excellent base to begin walking or cycling along the coast and around the peninsula to Loch Striven. Alternatively, you can trek up through the forest above, which provides wonderful views of the Isles of Arran, Bute and Cumbrae. Close by is Dunoon, the main town on the Cowal Peninsula and also the south-western gateway to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. Local attractions include Castle House Museum and Gardens, Bishop’s Glen, Dunoon Ceramics and Morag’s Fairy Glen. There is a swimming pool and leisure centre within the town, as well as a cinema, a range of restaurants and pubs, and an extensive scenic promenade.
Cowal, the area between Loch Long and Loch Fyne, boasts excellent opportunities for walking and cycling. The Kyles of Bute, Tighnabruaich and the beautiful sandy beach at nearby Kilbride Bay all make for fantastic days out. The Arrochar Alps in northern Cowal offer some of the finest hill walking in the southern Highlands, which include the Cowal Way (known as ‘Scotland in 57 miles’), Kilmun Arboretum and Loch Eckside to name but a few. The highly popular walking festival of CowalFest is now firmly established as a highlight of the year in the Cowal calendar, with a variety of graded and numbered walks to suit all ages and abilities. There are also cultural and social events to accompany this event, which usually last about 10 days around the middle of October – a must for keen walking enthusiasts.
Excursions on the famous Waverley paddle steamer are available direct from Dunoon’s pier, up to five days each week in season. The wonderful Benmore Botanic Gardens near Loch Eck provide an idyllic setting for a fascinating day out. The nearest train station is Gourock, just 6 miles away, which can be reached by taking the bus (just a short walk away) and a ferry ride. Dunoon is also well known for the Cowal Highland Gathering, the biggest and most spectacular Highland games in the world, which is held the last weekend of August. Beach 25 yards.
