the rooms as an extra backup should it be needed.

The area, which is approximately seven miles from Dunoon and on the edge of Scotland's First National Park, is well served with a post office / mini market, hotel, pub, golf and bowling clubs, medical centre, churches and a fantastic primary school which has been awarded the Green Flag. The popular, and ever expanding, Holy Loch Marina is just a few minutes’ drive away at the other side of the loch. There is also a regular bus service to Dunoon making the supermarkets, shops, hairdressers, eateries, pubs, sports and sailing clubs and cinema etc easily accessible. 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.
