Immerse yourself in Cowal

Flanked by Loch Long and Loch Fyne, the Cowal Peninsula is a rich landscape of contrasts, ranging from the Munros of the north to the mellow scenery of the south. Only an hour from Glasgow, it offers a tantalising taste of the Highlands. Paddle steamers used to bring throngs of holidaymakers ‘doon the watter’ to its shores. 

Stunning stretches of water characterise the area’s coastline. Argyll Forest Park spreads across much of Cowal, providing an unbeatable outdoor playground, with plenty of opportunity for adventure as well as gentle woodland strolls. Breath-taking beaches, awe-inspiring wildlife and glorious gardens all await you in Cowal.
