About this location
The Argyll and Bute region
Captivating Bute, once the island retreat of Scottish kings, lies at the heart of the Firth of Clyde, and is the favourite destination of the famous 'Waverley', the last seagoing paddle steamer in the world.
Cowal and Bute offer you the most populated area of lochs and walkways, spectacular scenery, botanic gardens, castles and wildlife in Scotland and because it is off the beaten tourist track, a very peaceful and relaxing place in which to stay.
The Cowal Peninsula and Argyll Forest Park, some 54,000 acres, offer you a wide range of sporting activities including golf, fishing, various pleasure cruises, mountain-biking, cycling, organized horse riding and of course sailing and other water-based sports. For the walker choose from Seaside / Lochside trails to Woodland forest trails through what is accepted as the most beautiful scenic area of Scotland, notably Pucks Glen, Glenbranter and the magnificent world renowned "Benmore Botanic Gardens".
Magnificent Loch Eck just over 6 miles long and 67 feet above sea level, scythes through the centre of the Cowal Peninsula, surrounded by high, forested hills. The loch epitomises Cowal - rugged and spectacular but at the same time peaceful, where you can while away the hours walking, taking in the scenery and fishing in Loch Eck for Salmon trout, the Gwyniad or fresh-water Herring and a remarkably translucent fish 4 or 5 inches long called the Goldie.The area abounds in wildlife. Seagulls, Cormorants, Gannets, Eider Ducks and Swans and Seals are frequent passers-by.
Spectacular location on the banks of the Clyde Estuary, with fantastic sea views over to Ayrshire and panoramic views to Cumbrae Island, Arran and the Kintyre Peninsula.
The village of Innellan has 2 inns, a post office that sells groceries and is 5 miles south of Dunoon.
Take a relaxing stroll or bike ride along the shore road to Dunoon or Toward with its picturesque lighthouse... Or take one of the numerous scenic forest walks and loch side trails with signposted footpaths.
There are 3 local golf courses within easy reach of Innellan and Blairmore (both competitive 9 hole course) and the Cowal golf course, Dunoon (18 holes). Fishing and sea angling is available on your doorstep either from the banks of the Clyde below the front garden or the old pier. Numerous nearby rivers offer Brown Trout, Salmon and Sea Salmon. For those wishing to cruise on Loch Eck, motor or rowing boats are available to hire.
Toward Castle is now a residential training centre operated by Actual Reality Scotland and offers fantastic days out for bored restless children, Castle Towards outdoor education activities include catwalks and a high jump, as well as gorge walks and hill walks. The children's BBC TV series Raven also use Castle Toward as a film location.
The Benmore Gardens, a specialist garden of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, is a magnificent woodland garden set amidst the mountains of the Cowal Peninsula. Its 140 acres are renowned for the wide collection of trees and shrubs, which includes over 250 species of rhododendrons. One of the most spectacular views is the avenue of Giant Redwood trees which greets every visitor on entering the garden. Throughout there are waymarked walks, which lead to a beautiful pond and formal garden which display a wide variety of Himalayan and Oriental plants. The richly planted hill slopes which rise to 450 feet to a dramatic viewpoint overlook the Eachaig valley and the Holy Loch.

"Magnificent 5* accomodation in a tranquil, relaxing environment"
This holiday flat is truly breathtaking; the moment you enter you are
overwhelmed by the views, the decor, and the bright and spacious space
around you. The owner has gone to great lengths to ensure a stay here
will be a great one. The interior is decorated to a very high
standard and blends wonderfully with living by the sea.
Everything from cutlery to bed linen - which is Egyptian cotton - is
of good quality. I was happy to find there was no TV in the living
room, there is one in the second bedroom with a DVD player and a huge
collection of movies to choose from, but out of habit I would have sat
in front of it and missed out on the hours of fun playing Scrabble,
Dominoes and Jenga. There is an interesting collection of books
Where the owner of this property has gone the extra mile is in
providing the basics you require in self-catering accommodation.
Aside from the usual welcome pack, which is very tastefully presented,
including tea and coffee etc, you will find condiments, olive oil,
enough dish-washing tablets and soap powder for the week.
Complimentary toiletries, as good as you'll find in any 5* hotel, are
I have spent many holidays in self-catering properties around Scotland
and I can honestly say this place is the finest.
