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.
A luxury hotel in the true sense of the word, The Argyll Hotel, with its majestic views of the River Clyde , is a stylish property in the very heart of Dunoon. While many of Dunoon hotels claim to have Dunoon's landmarks on their doorstep, The Argyll Hotel is itself one of these landmarks!
The Argyll, Dunoon's renowned hotel for Scottish ambience and cuisine offers newly refurbished accommodation throughout. There are 32 beautiful individually styled bedrooms all equipped to high standard and many with panoramic views of the river Clyde. Add two of the finest restaurants, serving both Scottish and Italian cuisine, plus a perfect location and that makes The Argyll a unique place to stay. The hotel is situated right next to the ferry terminal, with an hourly service to Gourock and fast rail connections to all of Central Scotland

Hi Andy, Holy Loch Marina will probably know the answer This is the contact number we have for them +44 (0)1369 701800
Hope you get sorted.
was amazed at what you get pound for pound, and Marco was brilliant.
Will keep you posted.
One thing missing here is good old Scottish grub, can someone let us know for future reference if there is anywhere?
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 ]
