Discover the Cowal Peninsula

Cowal is the perfect destination for food lovers. The clear waters provide some of the best seafood in the world, the estates supply the finest game, venison and meat - including Highland cattle beef - and the thriving community of local producers create everything from smoked delicacies to local ales. And the many cafes, restaurants and pubs serve it all up in relaxed surroundings. Wherever you choose to eat, the welcome will be warm and the company convivial. If you decide a takeaway is just what you need, there's a great choice too, especially the local fish and chips!
