  • "We loved our stay at Mars Hill lower."

    It is a beautiful, spacious apartment with outstanding views over the harbour. The furnishing is quirky and fun. The apartment was clean, warm, and everything we needed was easy to use. Kitchen equipment was more than fine for simple cooking, though perhaps not for fine dining! Dunoon itself is a fantastic base to reach the nearby Cowal hills - which was our reason for the visit. The only small issue we had was that we had driven up with our small camper van (Hyundai i800) which doesn’t have a great turning circle - making it very difficult to turn around on the relatively small drive up at the house. We elected to park on the street instead, though probably would have been fine in a smaller car.

    Thank you for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay in Dunoon and the decor, I tried to bring elements and colours of the outside into the apartment when I was doing it up. Property Owner

About the location


Glasgow 36 miles.

The traditional resort town of Dunoon sits on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Accessible by both land and sea, the trip to Dunoon can either be a ferry crossing over the Firth of Clyde, considered to be one of the best sailing areas in the world, or by a drive through spectacular scenery of dramatic mountains and lochs, each more breathtaking than the last. The area boasts a full calendar of events from food and music festivals to sailing regattas and a well-known Highland Gathering. Dunoon itself boasts many bars, coffee shops and restaurants offering local seafood as well as a high street of mainly independent shops offering a refreshingly different shopping experience. Benmore Botanic Garden is well worth a visit with its walled garden, imposing Giant Sequoia trees and hillside walks affording views over Holy Loch, renowned for its shipbuilding tradition and which, for many years, was a US Navy submarine base. With excellent walking, sailing and scenery to be enjoyed, and Glasgow around an hour's drive away, there is something to delight everyone in this truly beautiful part of Scotland.
