Surrounded by rolling countryside and hills, and on the shores of Loch Fyne, Strachur (Gaelic for “Valley of the Cur”, with the ‘Cur’ being the name of the river flowing from the hills east of the village) is situated perfectly for commuting to Dunoon, the bustling capital of Cowal, the Royal Burgh of Inveraray, or Loch Lomond but is still only little more than an hour away from Glasgow. In the area there are local pubs, tea rooms, a golf course, post office, a petrol station with well stocked shop, doctors, schools and playparks. It is the perfect location from escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, but with everything you want on your doorstep.
