The town of Dunoon lies on the River Clyde, is part of the beautiful Cowal Peninsula and a gateway to Argyll & Bute and the Highlands. The ruins of Dunoon Castle date back to the 11th century with the town’s history dominated by two feuding clans – the Lamonts and the Campbells. At the heart of the town is the Victorian pier leading to an attractive promenade.

The town has two supermarkets and a wide selection of individual shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is a working general hospital, a large secondary school and 3 primary schools. The University of the Highlands and Islands has a campus in Dunoon located at Argyll College.

The town’s swimming pool and leisure centre has been refurbished as has the Queens Hall meeting and entertainment complex which sits across from the pier. There is a dual screen cinema in the town and a rapidly growing cultural centre at the restored Dunoon Burgh Hall.

The town is surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Cowal peninsula with its many walks and bike trails. Dunoon is placed on the edge of the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park and is close to the renowned Benmore Botanic Garden.

The town lies approximately 35 miles from Glasgow and can be reached by road, road and ferry or rail and ferry.

The road only route provides a picturesque trip over the Rest and Be Thankful. The trip is approximately 80 miles from Glasgow centre and takes around 2 hours.

The alternative journey by car and ferry starts with a car journey from Glasgow to Gourock which takes around an hour. There is a choice of the passenger ferry service run by Calmac between Gourock and Dunoon town centres or the car and passenger service operated by Western Ferries from McInroy’s Point some 2 miles south of Gourock to Hunter's Quay (2 miles south of Dunoon). Both crossings take approximately 20 minutes.

The train journey from Glasgow Central to Gourock takes less than an hour and connects with the adjacent Calmac ferry service at Gourock.

In addition, buses from Glasgow’s Buchanan Street Bus Station operate direct or via a change at Greenock and call both at Gourock train station to link with Calmac Ferries and at McInroy’s Point where they link with Western Ferries

West Coast Motors operate a number of local bus services connecting the complex to the town centre and also connecting with many of the other villages within the Cowal peninsula. West Coast Motors also operate a service to Inveraray which then connects to services onward to Campbeltown, Oban and Glasgow.
