Rhu is a welcoming village and historic parish resting on the east shore of the Gare Loch in Argyll and Bute in Scotland. The village became popular in the 19th century as a residence for wealthy Glasgow shipowners and merchants, with it now being a fantastic base for yachting, with a 235-berth marina and many yacht moorings on the sheltered loch, with the Royal Northern & Clyde Yacht Club being here too. The village is home to a lovely local shop selling all the essentials as well as two charming pubs and a coffee shop, providing all you could need for a self-catered stay. Enjoy a scenic stroll in the Glenarn Gardens, a sheltered woodland garden overlooking the Gareloch, here you can expect to find an enticing Himalayan atmosphere, famed for its collection of rare and tender rhododendrons.
