Innellan Farmhouse, near Dunoon, is the historic home farm of the local lairds. A cobbled path to the shore (and old ferry site) emphasizes its importance of old. You can relax and unwind in the open space of its 80 acres, taking in fresh sea air and drinking in the awesome country and prominent coastal views. The farmhouse is on the fringe of the village and a pleasant stroll to the shop, bars and restaurants. The village is situated on the most southerly edge of the Cowal Peninsula and based here you can explore from the hebridean-like shell sand beach of Ostal Bay to the climber's paradise of the dark Arrochar Alps in the north. In between you can revel in an assortment of sites that will interest the historian/gardener/outward-bound enthusiast/naturalists and those seeking an off the beaten track experience of Scotland - without the queues!
Those wishing to tour can easily take in the ancient seats of the Lamonts, Campbells, McLachlans, McNaughtons and Fletchers. Take in the 5 loch tour to Glasgow. Lose yourself in the adjacent Loch Lomond National Park. Take single-track road trips to excellent rated local eateries - whose locations are an equal feast to savour as well. Every twist and turn of the road will reveal another priceless view; a ruined castle, a dark moody headland, delightful native oak woodlands. Whatever the weather, the light is something to experience here. Being at the edge of the Atlantic, the sea is always a point of interest and is something that can be easily appreciated from your own bedroom window.
Tired of the car? Take a cruiser, yacht, speedboat or even a paddle steamer to somewhere different. Perhaps to the neighbouring islands you see from your window or to the other seaside towns of the Clyde coast which are as equally charming as Dunoon. The simple benefit of being on the coast has resulted in interesting architecture being created to display the wealth of former residents. Some houses are resplendent in their opulence - the nearby Castle Toward owner planted so many trees on his estate that he influenced the weather!
There is a lot to see and a lot to do, but if you wish to just stay still, there can be no better place to do it then this special corner of Argyll!
