My Booking

The area boasts the spectacular West Highland scenery as well as an abundance of things to see and do

The Cowal Peninsula is a particularly captivating part of the West coast of Scotland, ever so slightly off the beaten track, but with all the beauty and splendour the West Highlands has to offer.

Dunoon makes for an ideal base, unique and historical towns such as Inveraray, Oban and Fort William are within easy reach, and whether driving or walking about, the spectacular Highland scenery is a real joy.

For the energetic, activities such as quad biking, clay pigeon shooting, golf and fishing can easily be arranged. A more gentle day might involve a lovely forest walk, a spot of loch side lunch, and back to the hotel for tea and home baking. Cowal can boast beautiful beaches, castles and botanical gardens, and being on the cusp of Scotland’s first National Park, the natural beauty of the area never fails to delight.

Castle Museum of Dunoon

Ironic, when you consider the medieval inspiration of the Gothic Revival. Set in 300 acres of grounds which include designed gardens, woodland and coast there is something for everyone at Mount Stuart! Click here for more information.
