Get away from it all
When you feel the call of the wild, make a break for Cowal. Dunoon, ‘Gateway to the Highlands’, is a brilliant base for outdoor adventures and getting there is easier than you might think. It may be a hop, skip and a jump from Glasgow, but it feels like a world away.
Once there, Argyll Forest Park is on your doorstep and the town is surrounded by hills and large tracts of forest, perfect for walking, horse-riding and mountain biking. If you're looking for adventure, why not try your hand at quad biking with Quadmania or take a trip out on the water in a rib boat or scuba diving with Wreckspeditions.
