Hotels in Dunoon
On Scotland's beautiful west coast, interlaced with islands, lochs and inlets, lies Argyll's largest town, Dunoon. A popular destination, Dunoon is perfectly placed between the west coast famous isles and the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, with easy access to Glasgow. With such a wealth of natural beauty to explore and a range of Dunoon hotels to suit everyone's needs, it's a perfect location to discover some of the country's most stunning scenery.
As early as 1800, Dunoon was a popular seaside resort. Today, with easy ferry access, the town hosts visitors from far and wide – particularly for its annual Cowal Highland Gathering. More accessible by water than by land, the town's two bays create an attractive island feel. Angling enthusiasts will enjoy a day spent fishing for brown trout, while children can play on the shores of the bays or enjoy a boat trip along the coast. The nearby Gourock Outdoor Pool is a heated, open-air saltwater pool, for those who want the sea experience without Atlantic temperatures – and it also offers midnight swims and kayaking lessons. In Greenock, the Waterfront Leisure Complex boasts flume and tyre rides, wave machines and a safe toddlers' play section, while in Dunoon itself is the Riverside Swim and Health Centre.
The Castle House Museum offers insight into the Cowal region's history – from the Stone Age to the more recent American submarine station. The museum's gardens are a great place for picnics, with views of the Firth of Clyde as well as putting and tennis facilities.
Walkers will enjoy the wealth of options the area offers – from The Trossachs National Park to the Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park and the Argyll Forest Park – all within a short journey. For day trips, the nearby islands of Bute and Arran are known for their outstanding beauty and individual characters.
Shopping and dining
With a number of traditional shops lining the streets, you can enjoy strolling through the town and sampling some of the local produce – from fresh seafood to game and vegeSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTIONs.
