    We had a wonderful festive time at the Victorian Christmas event. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. Our son was dressed as Santa and he got to meet the Victorian Santa in his beautiful green outfit. There was lots to do like making Christmas crafts , the robin trail etc. I absolutely loved the Christmas carols that we sang. It took me back to the days where you could go round doors and sing carols. And to top it off we won lots of things at the tombola and enjoyed a nice hot chocolate!

    We are already planning our trip back in Easter and bringing my mother in law with us.

    Thank you for being so kind and friendly. Everyone in Dunoon seems to be friendly. Highly recommend going here !

    We had a lovely walk around Bishop's Glen earlier today, with views of the reservoir and some impressive pine trees. The children enjoyed skimming stones on the water too. The paths are well laid out and easy enough to walk around.

    Pretty attractive garden. Very worth visiting even in a rainy wet day. Very narrow roads and parking is a short walk away. Beautiful garden.

    To be honest, there isn't a lot left of the C11th castle apart from a few ruins around the flagpole. But it is worth the climb for the views across Dunoon.

  • Mary Campbell was born in Dunoon and became famous because of Robert burns poetry.
    While she was working in Ayrshire, she met Robert burns where they handfasted and planned to emigrate to Jamaica, but sadly mary died at the age of 23.
    The statue was placed here 100 years after her death.

  • Puffin rock sits on the Kirn shore, just before you pass into Dunoon.
    It's a great photo opportunity if you can get down to it, that is..., the stairs are out of use due to overgrown grass, and the rails are broken, so you have to climb down the steep slope over the rocks, which can be slippery.
    There are several of these painted rocks to find around Argyll and Bute, Arran and Cumbrae.

    We were there on a school holidays and popped in at the start to find out about opening times and were given a leaflet which explaied what was on and when. Depending on the days there was flume, big floats sessions etc . Some of these were only for 8 years old plus.
    The changing rooms and kids pools were as you would expect but they kids pool had a wee slide which was great for the little ones.
