Hello, here in Argyll we have a very good Association that has helped many local self catering accommodation providers. They have been very good at organising courses and also providing help in order to provide you our visitors with the best and safest accommodation. We are good and Ready to go. These last few months have been very distressing but now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and we would like to take some time to let all our future guests to know what we are now doing. to enhance our cleaning protocols.

They have been very good at organising courses and also providing help in order to provide you our visitors with the best and safest accommodation. We are good and Ready to go. These last few months have been very distressing but now we can see the light at the end of the tunnel and we would like to take some time to let all our future guests to know what we are now doing. to enhance our cleaning protocols. Firstly here at Heronlea we are adding days after you leave and calling them cleaning days. It gives us the extra time to clean and sanitise. This includes extra time spent cleaning high touch areas , removing pillows and duvets and replacing them with 'rested' sanitised ones, washing all crockery and cutlery and kitchen requisites. Some soft furnishings and toys may have been removed all together others are spray sanitised. Entry is by key safe , we will let our guest know the code before they arrive.We do hope that this new regime gives everyone more confidence that we are taking this situation seriously and hope to see new and old friends very soon. Heronlea Cottage it is situated in a secluded yet totally convenient setting. The cottage overlooks a large lawned area which has a large pond and lots of wild birds, you will think that you are at least 20 miles from Dunoon, such is the location that you will not believe without visiting us that you could have such peace and seclusion and be so near to everything.Deer and other visitors regularly stroll though the parkland. Please check our rates and last minute booking special offers.! The cottage is very comfortably furnished, it is warm and heated throughout the winter when it isn't allowed to become cold .You may use the heating as necessary without extra charges. At certain times of the year when birds are nesting etc or when it has been extremely wet parts of the garden may not be advisable especially with a dog, however there are still extensive areas of woodland and farmland when you may exercise your dog.Please note, your pet may not be allowed out on its own at any time or without being on a lead as there are sheep adjacent to the cottage. When you arrive if there are any problems ie very wet ground etc we will let you know. Our private orchard area of the garden is not open to the public.The forests and forest walks are available to you all year and they are very extensive with fantastic views over they River Clyde and Dunoon from the easily accessible forest track directly from Heronlea. Cycling along the forest tracks is very popular and leads to Loch Striven and other areas such as Glen Kin. and Toward Innellan and Dunoon. Heronlea Cottage has two bedrooms on the ground floor and sleeps four + a small infant,. No extra guests please as the facilities are not really suitable for more. ..Adjacent to the bedrooms is a large family shower room, The newly fitted Kitchen and a separate toilet complete the layout on the ground floor.The spacious lounge is on the upper floor and has been thoughtfully planned giving you somewhere to recover after a long days sightseeing walking or travelling and has views over the garden and through the glen. towards Ben Mor and the surrounding mountains and a small library and reading area. As a matter of course we take two small dogs the size of a cocker spaniel at any one time. Dogs may not be left on the premises alone. Dunoon has so much to offer and as the gateway to the Cowal Peninsula we are certain that you will find lots to interest you. Heronlea Cottage is also in a prime place for those intending to visit the Cowal Games being in walking distance of the stadium 15 MINS by foot 2 mins by car. In and around Dunoon there are golf courses and two swimming pools, plus all the usual facilities library, hospital, two supermarkets, independent shops on the main street and lots of good restaurants cafes and bars. You will find lots of good walking routes, and biking routes fishing by permit (easily purchased) the nearest DAC loch is 200 yards from the cottage Activites for the young and not so young including fishing golf quad biking archery swimming etc. We are keen to encourage those liking live music and theatre as the newly renovated Queens Hall and Burgh Hall generally have entertainment , Local bars have live music too which is always popular and just over a mile from Heronlea Cottage.More
