The Argyll and Bute region

Argyll is situated on the west coast of Scotland, within just an hour's drive from Glasgow, and two hours from Edinburgh. Within Argyll is the Cowal Peninsula, an area known as Argyll's Secret Coast because of its undiscovered charm. You won't find crowds of tourists here, but you will find tranquility and stunning scenery, secluded sandy beaches, rugged hills and ancient forests, a land back in time and rich in archaeology.

Cowal is the ideal holiday location for families and couples. The main town, Dunoon, has many amenities for all ages, and there are opportunities for golf, fishing, horse-riding, mountain-biking, quad biking and stalking. There's magic and mystery at Pucks Glen, and the tall trees of the Benmore Gardens will delight. There are many country inns, restaurants and small cafés to visit. The Cowal area is perfect for adventure, relaxation and romance and for the gathering of those special holiday memories.


Rainbow Lodge, one of the Pucks Glen Lodges, is situated within a cluster of privately owned lodges just a short drive from Dunoon on the edge of the Benmore Forest. The magical Pucks Glen, Black Gates Walk, Kilmun Arboretum and Benmore Botanical Gardens are easily accessible from the door. A little to the North is Loch Eck, with the Holy Loch to the South.

The lodge owners live nearby and can personally vouch for the abundance of wildlife seen in the area, including Red and Roe Deer, Red Squirrel, Heron, Oystercatcher, Curlew, and Sparrowhawk, to name but a few. The elusive Pine Martin and Otter have also been sighted.

A little further afield are Old Castle Lachlan, Inveraray Castle and Jail, Auchindrain Rural Life Museum, the gothic mansion of Mount Stuart, the stone circles and cairns of the Kilmartin Glen and the Hollow Mountain.

"Lovely Cabin"

This is a lovely log cabin, located in Pucks glen. The cabin is clean and tidy and since Mr. H's review below has two new sofas. On arrival, there were some very welcoming tea cakes which went … More

Thank you for your comments, which seem very fair as we continue to improve this lodge. The antiquated coin meter has now been removed and electricity is now charged at cost based on meter readings taken before arrival and on departure and further re-decoration has been carried out.

"Nice place but needs modernising/replacements"

Really nice setting and lovely accommodation but I feel it needs modernizing, perhaps a good clean, new sofa and carpets, but for us the immersion tank broke so 2 days without hot water and young kids was not good, bathing with a kettle was our only option as a couple of attempts to fix it failed. For the price paid we would have been happy enough, but this did spoil it for us and no offer of a part refund. I would also avoid accommodation in the future that you had to feed an electricity meter with coins, especially being being isolated and with young children, run out in the night and it gets mighty cold!

Would I recommend it? No, not without it having an overhaul, and new hot water tank.

We're grateful for your comments and will take action to improve. In our rural location getting tradesmen to assist quickly is not always possible, but thankfully our plumber did attend the same day and he was able to effect a temporary repair. We agree that charging for electricity by coin meter is old fashioned and we are reviewing this. Our dilemma is that some guests like the system as it means they pay only for the power they use. Its also environmentally friendly. But, off-meter heating is in place so the cabin will never drop below a reasonable temperature, even if the coin meter is not fed its daily diet. We are independently graded 3-stars by the Scottish Tourist Board and strive to meet and exceed their expectations and those of our guests, providing clean, quality accommodation at an affordable price.

"Great location for a short break"

We stayed for a long weekend and it was an ideal location for getting around. The site was quiet and well maintained. Will definitely go back and would recommend it.
