A Trip to Dunoon
Dunoon, some 26 miles from here, is our nearest town. There is a bus service twice a day, otherwise you can travel by car and some of you may have travelled this way from Glasgow and will know the road. As most roads in this area are single track in some places, please bear in mind the local traffic and pull over to let faster traffic go by. The locals say thank you by a flashing both or a single indicator.
Things To Do In And Around Dunoon
In and around Dunoon there is a lot to do. There is the Castle House Museum where there is a plethora of history, the high street with some usual high street shops and some not so usual, like Dunoon fine china mugs and, the Scottish Soap Company. To the north of Dunoon is Benmore Botanic Garden, described as a magnificent mountainside garden with its famous avenue of giant redwoods. There are also a number of forestry walks in the area, and an outdoor pursuits centre, Quadmania, and on the way back a trip along the side of Loch Eck towards Strachur is a lovely end to the day.
A huge thank you to all the wonderful staff who gave us such a warm welcome. Fabulous hotel – wish we could have stayed longer. Hope to be back. – Feb 2011 ...
