Rosneath Peninsula is quiet, peaceful and very relaxing. Its name derives from the Gaelic , meaning a sanctuary - most appropriate as the visitor escapes from the hustle and bustle of modern life.The natural environment provides wonderful opportunities for outdoor activities such as sailing, walking, cycling. Lying between the Gare Loch and Loch Long in Argyll and Bute, on the north shore of the Firth of Clyde.The peninsula itself is made up of gentle and rolling hills, with the communities of Cove, Kilcreggan, Rosneath, Clynder and Garelochhead nestling at their foot,secluded little communities, amidst natural beauty with a character all of their own.
All are linked by good roads, which along with the rail network and ferry services enable the visitor to quickly reach Loch Lomond and the National Park as well as the surrounding towns of Helensburgh, Greenock, Gourock and Dunoon and of course the vibrant city of Glasgow.
The peninsula's climate is affected by warming effects of the gulf stream, which make it mild.
The whole area of the sweeping bay that dominates the landscape at Clynder is a mecca for yachts and other craft and offers a fabulous sailing area. There is excellent access to and from the shore, with plenty of good anchorages and on-shore services.
The magnificent scenery draws many visitors, and walks and drives around the Peninsula offer stunning vistas around almost every corner. Even the small ferry that carries passengers between Kilcreggan and Gourock is a pleasure jaunt in itself giving uninterrupted views of the Firth of Clyde and its backdrop of hills, lochs and islands.
On the shore road, walkers and cyclists are amply rewarded for their efforts. Not only can they enjoy the views at leisure, they also have time to study the many fine Victorian houses and castles along the way. For the student of architecture, the area is a concentrated showcase of works of distinguished Scottish architects of the Victorian era, e.g. Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, William Leiper, John Honeyman, William Motherwell, and others. Helensburgh demands a visit as it boasts the word famous 'Hill House'designed and built by Charles Rennie Macintosh.
The Rosneath Peninsula occupies a commanding situation on the banks of the world-famous River Clyde, just on the boundary between the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland. Thanks to the unique location of the peninsula, Loch Lomond, Stirling and the Trossachs, and the Western Highlands are also within easy reach. The A817 Haul Road taking vistors to Loch Lomond from the peninsula has been voted one of the most beautiful road journeys in the UK!
Some eight miles in length, the peninsula is bounded on one side by the sheltered waters of the Gareloch and on the other by the fjord-like Loch Long, which reaches deeply into the hills and mountains known as the 'Arrochar Alps' and 'Argyle's Bowling Green'.
The main part of the peninsula is a continuous ridge, which, from the shores of the Gare Loch and Loch Long, and the Firth of Clyde, rises to 717 feet at Tamnahara or Cnoc na h-Airidhe, 645 to the E of Peaton, 651 at Clach Mackenny, and 414 at the Gallowhill. The greater part of the ridge is a tableland, waste or pastoral, with swells commanding gorgeous views of the hill-flanks of the Clyde, together with the northern screen of the Gare Loch and the Duke of Argyll's Bowling Green.
Scotland's west coast and its Gulf-Stream-generated mild and wet weather provides a fertile environment for a vast variety of plants, including exotic and rare species from Asia and other places. Because of this, a number of interesting and notable gardens have been developed and are open to the public. The Linn Gardens at Cove are open all year round. Kilarden at Rosneath and Woodburn at Garelochhead alongside other beautiful private gardens in the area are sometimes open as part of Scotland's Gardens Scheme.
