The property itself is fantastic in that there are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms which worked well with our larger group. I especially liked the fact the garden was absolutely sealed by fences and was perfect and safe for my dog who wanders. The cottage is very warm and very well insulated and a first for us as we are...

Great facilities overall and a warm and cosy...

How to get there
Airport: Glasgow International: 90.0 km
Ferry: Western Ferries Hunters Quay PA23 8HJ: 45.0 km
By ferry: There are two regular car ferry services across the Clyde from Gourock ( half an hour on the M8 from Glasgow) to Dunoon. The Calmac ferry links with trains from Glasgow, whilst for cars, Western Ferries is normally more convenient operating, at peak times, 4 times an hour. Glendaruel is approximately 18 miles from Dunoon, taking the B836 through Glen Lean and then the A8003 towards Tighnabruaich [we are one and a half miles from that turning].

By road: Cross the Clyde on the Erskine Bridge (3 miles from Glasgow Airport on the M8) and take the A82 alongside Loch Lomond to Tarbet, then over the ’Rest and Be Thankful’ (the A83) ) before turning left onto the A815, sign-posted Dunoon. At the village of Strachur turn right onto the A886 and after 15 miles, just after the Clachan of G...
