Where we are
Dunoon is our nearest town which we are south of, running down the Clyde coast towards the islands of Bute and Arran. At the lighthouse we turn the corner and follow Loch Striven to the top of the loch. We have 17 miles of coastline to explore until you reach the end point, where you turn back along the 7 mile stretch of single track road, or strike up into the hills for some of the forestry or mountain bike loops. These can take you back to our village, Innellan, to our shop and pub/restaurants, or on to Dunoon.
The Cumbrae islands sit across the estuary where they keep Largs company. Bute stares you in the face when you turn up towards the Kyles and Loch Striven. Goatfell on Arran rises above the soft undulations of Bute. Ailsa Craig, frequently offering the illusion of floating on the sea, (a trick copied by the Ayrshire coast), is 30 miles on the horizon, and half way to Northern Ireland.
Striking north from Dunoon offers access to the Kyles, the ferry to Bute and ‘Secret Coast’ destinations. Going up past beautiful Loch Eck via Strachur also does or venture to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
