The quiet and peaceful village of Toward has the perfect fusion of country and coastal living and offers stunning views of Cumbrae and Bute with Arran in the distance. The village is located approximately 7 miles along the shore road from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town, which boasts two supermarkets, local shops and hairdressers aplenty, several cafes, restaurants and take-aways, offering a range to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty of pubs, two leisure centres, numerous golf, bowling, tennis and sailing clubs, a two-screen cinema, a local museum and a concert venue. There are also ample schools, churches, medical surgeries, dentists, a hospital and a veterinary practice.
