Sandbank is approximately three miles from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town. The village, which sits on the banks of the Holy Loch, boasts a marina, sailing club, village shop / post office, primary school, bowling club and a children’s play area with basketball / 5-a-side football pitch. The famous Benmore Botanic Garden and Loch Eck are just a couple of miles further north. In the Dunoon area there are two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes and restaurants, offering a range to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling and tennis clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample churches, medical surgeries, dentists, a hospital and a veterinary practice. In addition, there are two ferry links to Gourock with rail and coach links meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
