The village of Sandbank is approximately two miles from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town. Sitting on the banks of the Holy Loch it boasts a marina, sailing club, village shop / post office, takeaway, two pubs, a primary school and a bowling club. Dunoon itself has all the amenities that you associate with a large seaside town and has two ferries to Gourock with rail and coach links thus meaning that Glasgow city centre is little more than an hour away, with Glasgow Airport, Braehead Shopping Centre and Greenock even closer.
