Information
DUNOON

Nestled on the west shore of the Firth of Clyde on the east side of the mountainous Cowal Peninsula, Dunoon stands amongst some of the most stunningly magnificent scenery you’ll find anywhere in the UK. The seaboard gateway to the Scottish highlands, the town is actually more accessible by sea than land. Dunoon became a top holiday destination during the Victorian holiday boom, when paddle steamers brought Glaswegian visitors by there thousands to enjoy the awe inspiring scenery and innately hospitable spirit of this truly unique part of the world.

Dunoon town is the focal point of the surrounding area with the Argyll Street acting as the centre for shopping and socialising. Here you can buy delicious home baked goods and fresh local produce and discover evidence of a town that wears its artistic and cultural heart on its sleeve. You can also dine out in friendly, vibrant surroundings or enjoy a dram or two in a local pub.

In spite the demise of the paddle steamers Dunoon has retained its love affair with the sea, with the development of the wonderful Holy Loch Marina. A mile wide at its broadest point, Holy Loch became a submarine base during WW2 and an American Naval Base from the 1960s to the 1990s. Today it is a world-class marina catering almost exclusively for pleasure craft, with abundant moorings and superb facilities for yachtsmen and powerboat enthusiasts. But do not be fooled by all the 21st century maritime razzmatazz, Dunoon cherishes its nautical roots and the last working seagoing paddle steamer, The Waverly, still calls regularly at the pier.

One of the worst days ever here in Dunoon, no letting up with the rain.
One thing missing here is good old Scottish grub, can someone let us know for future reference if there is anywhere?

Last night i sampled the new Thai Takeaway Koh Samui in Kirn ( 2 minutes up the prom from Dunoon ) and can give it the thumbs up as i have visited Thailand many times and obviously dined there also.
Gang Massaman ( # 37 ) was my choice as it is a traditional Thai Curry with chicken or beef , Coconut Milk , Potatoes and obviously Peanuts .
It was delicious and for anyone who has never tried Thai Curry it is a good place to start , being very mild .
I wish them every success in their new venture and you would have to go a long way to find something similar [ i mean Scotland not Thailand ]

Glad to see you have someone updating the area around Holy Loch Marina , it is a beautiful area and has some amazing places to eat , stay , or visit especially Benmore Botanic Garden where plants can be seen from the Orient and as far away as South America.
