Many of our activities are water based; we have a good slipway for boat launching and maintain up to twenty four deep water moorings.
Largiemore’s beach is gravel and stone and provides hours of entertainment for children gathering sea creatures from under the rocks.
Touring and Sightseeing
Tour the magnificent Kyles of Bute, visit the Younger Botanic Gardens, the garrison town of Inverary or the award winning Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute. Alternatively, drive a little further to the picturesque village of Crinan and on to Oban or cross on the nearby Portavadie ferry to Tarbert, the Mull of Kintyre and the Isle of Gigha with it’s famous gardens.
There are many miles of forestry and beach walks close by including an easy stroll down to Kilbride Bay, one of Argyll’s best beaches, which has superb views over to Arran.
Most of our local golf clubs welcome visitors, including the Kyles of Bute Golf Club at Tighnabruaich, which has a nine hole course with views over the Kyles. There are also couses at Dunoon, Innellan and Rothesay and the world famous links at Macrahanish are accessible via the Portavadie ferry.
There is good mackerel fishing in Loch Fyne from June through to September with the cod and haddock stocks showing signs of improvement and an occasional sea trout taken along the shoreline. Fresh water fly fishing is well catered for with day permits available on three local lochs. The Dunoon & District Angling Club’s lochs require a slightly longer drive and Loch Fad on Bute has a good reputation for being well stocked with big fish.
Our “local”, The Oystercatcher, a pleasant 25 minute walk along the shore road, has a good choice of local real ales in a cosy bar and a varied menu featuring locally sourced seafood and game. The Invercottage Restaurant is about a twenty minute drive up the loch and has a well deserved reputation for excellent cuisine in a friendly atmosphere. Further afield, Tighnabruaich has several hotels and restaurants and the Oyster Bar at the head of Loch Fyne has featured on television regularly over the years.
We maintain an up to date list of local hostelries in the renting accommodation.
