Dunoon, Cowal Peninsula, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
The Snug is a cosy, detached holiday cottage just a moment's stroll from the beach, and ideally situated for exploring Dunoon, the Cowal Peninsula and the beautiful mountains, lochs and villages of Argyll & Bute.

Originally an old hay barn, the cottage was renovated and extended in 2004 and comprises a bright, open-plan living space with fitted kitchen and sitting area on the upper floor from which there are lovely sea views from the french doors. On the ground floor there is a good-sized double bedroom and bathroom.

There is a shop, post office, restaurant and village pub all within walking distance.The Snug sleeps two in the double bedroom and there is also a...

We arrived during the bad snow which didn't put us off, we were able to unload the car and the doggies at the door then move the car to the end of the lane which was only a short walk, the Snug is ideal for a couple to use as a base for exploring, we took our two dogs with...

Management response:

I am so glad you had a good stay at The Snug! I'm envious of all the fantastic day-trips you managed, it must have looked lovely in the snow. Really pleased the dogs had a fun time too! Do let us know if you're holidaying here again and we'd be delighted to welcome you back. Thanks again, Katie

About the neighbourhood
There's SO much to see and do in Cowal that it would be hard to list it all here - so if you would like more information on the region, just let me (Katie) know!
Getting around
We're lucky that there's a great bus service with a bus stop only a couple of minutes walk from the cottage. The bus runs into the town of Dunoon and to lots of beautiful local villages, and there's even a dedicated stop at the breathtaking Botanic Gardens.

If you're travelling by car then there are a huge number of possibilities for days out and sightseeing - just let me (Katie) know if you'd like any suggestions.

A longer, but stunning, alternative route is to drive along the A82 north of Glasgow as far as Tarbet, followed by the A83 over the 'Res...
