Ken gave us a great welcome, and we enjoyed his hospitality throughout our stay The Douglas Park has a wonderful view over the Clyde, and it also provides a convenient centre for exploring Cowal

Tips:

We were recommended to the Lorne for our evening meal. Ken booked a table for our first night and we returned each evening.

Ken is the epitome of a gracious host. Everything is immaculate. Rooms are large with everything you need. Baths are very large and modern. The sea is just across the road from Douglas Park G H and presents a great vista. Breakfast was perfect with many choices.

A lovely guest house situated in a perfect spot for scenery and location. A wonderful walk into town or indeed and kind of rambling. Ken, the owner, is kind and thoughtful and can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Breakfast was great, plenty of it and cooked perfectly. Will certainly stay here again if I'm ever up this way again.

8th October 2021:

Perfect location with uninterrupted views across the Firth of Clyde and surrounding lochs from the lounge, dining room and front bedrooms. About one mile from the ferry to the north and a 20 minute flat walk along a beautiful, clean seafront into town. Douglas Park is spotlessly clean and comfortable and offers lots of little touches one would only expect to find in much more expensive accommodation - daily replenishment of toiletries, refreshments (including tea, coffee, biscuits, Tunnocks marshmallows, chocolates and a fresh bottle of tap water - and tempting sweets on the hall table). The host is very welcoming, extremely accommodating, keen to ensure you enjoy your stay. The breakfasts were super; plenty of choice and everything perfectly cooked - the best porridge I've had in any hotel. I would happily recommend Douglas Park and certainly would make it our choice of accommodation if we return to the area.

Tips:

Read the information booklet in the room as soon as you arrive in which you will discover how to use the powerful shower and that you can request extra pillows among other useful details. We ate at the Lorne Bar in town. It was recommended by our host and didn't disappoint with lots of choice of good food. Very busy, so book in advance. Would highly recommend. Also Duck Bay restaurant on the side of Loch Lomond was an unexpected find for lovely coffee and gorgeous pastries. Also serving breakfast, lunch and evening meals, which we didn't try having been served a full breakfast at Douglas Park, but the menu looked tempting and venue superb . We recommend a visit to Benmore Botanic Gardens, only about 5 miles away. Inverary is a lovely town to visit with its black and white buildings and beautiful scenery. Driving around the lochs and stopping to take in the awesome sights is a must, especially on the clear, sunny, autumn days that we were fortunate enough to enjoy.

Ken was the perfect host, made us feel at ease and welcome. Tunnocks teacakes in our room to go with our tea/coffee was a nice extra touch. The room was lovely, comfortable and well equipped with a terrific sea view. Breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice of options. I would cxertainly recommend Douglas Park Guest House to anyone intending to visit this beautiful area.

Tips:

We came here primarily for the Cowal Open Studios event. If you are interested in art, it is well worth the effort to get here when this is on. There is a huge variety of different types of art on display, mostly in the artists' own studios and the standard is very high. Elsewhere, Benmore Gardens is excellent, and the coast road from the ferry terminal down past Toward point is good for cycling - flat and reasonably quiet.

Located on the sea front in lovely seaside setting of Kirn about a mile pleasant stroll along the promenade to Dunoon town centre. There is a bus stop right outside if the walk is too much for you. Handy for the Hunters Quay car ferry this smart and clean B&B offers great views across the Firth of Clyde and is highly recommended. Kenny the owner ensures everyone feels at home and the standards he maintains would put some 4 star hotels to shame. Nice touches like the binoculars in the room to observe the wonderful sealife the Clyde presents are an example of this. The Tunnick Tea Cakes another. The breakfast menu is delicious and consistently good no matter what you order. For us this was the best B&B we have stayed in.

Tips:

Kenny is quite rightly proud of Dunoon and is more than happy to share his knowledge of the area with guests. For example he booked ahead our Evening Meal for the day we arrived after a long drive to Dunoon at The Lorne. The food was great and the staff really helpful. It saved us from a great deal of hassle in finding somewhere good to eat. If you travel across to Gourock on the ferry , the Cafe Continental was very good. We also made use of the reasonable public transport on the Cowel peninsula and a day ticket is from only £2.99 . The Shore cafe is lovely at Blairmore and later that same day we visited the Osbourne House in Innellen for a lovely evening meal. All accessible from the B&B on bus route outside. Benmore Gardens is a must visit too. If possible get along to Largs on the Clyde Coast too.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel most welcome by Kenny and wee Tilly the dog. Kenny is a very kind person and nothing is too much trouble for him to ensure your stay is perfect. Kenny had a 'new start' Callum for our breakfast waiter. Every day we watched Callum grow in confidence and I am sure under Kenny's guidance Callum will develop the gift of the banter too. Everything about Douglas Park is amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay there. One week was not enough. My shoulders, normally around my ears, relaxed and I felt the stress ebb away. Watch out for the Ducks! Thanks again Kenny - you are amazing. Yx

Tips:

The Coylet Inn and The Lorne for dinner. Blairmore for lunch. Walk along Lock Eck, Benmore Gardens, Ostel Bay - just ask Kenny - he will keep you right.

Another fabulous break at Douglas Park. Great location, overlooking the water. Ken is a friendly and helpful host, who cant do enough to help you. Room clean and very comfortable. Excellent place for touring surrounding areas or just to chill out and relax and take advantage of the peace and tranquility. Fabulous breakfast with plenty choices to suit everyone. You arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend.

Tips:

Nice walks in local area, and fairly good bus service to places of interest out with Dunoon. A few nice restaurants and supermarkets close by. Can just sit in the lounge watching boats sail by, and the Waverly during the summer months.

A fabulous place to stay. Ken made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and having tea and shortbread in the lounge looking out onto an amazing view was wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and the attention to detail was excellent. The room was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable and the large bathroom was wonderful. The breakfast was delicious (I can recommend the porridge) and the never ending teapot was a joy. We were so relaxed we felt as though we were spending a couple of nights with a good friend in their beautiful home. Thank you so much, we will be back soon.

Tips:

The Tree Shop on the road to Inveraray is worth a visit as is Inveraray itself. Try the apple strudel in Brambles on Main Street, you won’t be disappointed. Also worth a visit is The Blairmore cafe in Blairmore. The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly.

There is no better place to spend your visit to Dunoon. Fantastic quality of accomodation plus extra attention to detail. The host is warm and knowledgeable. We have dietary requirements which were well catered for. The Douglas Park even comes equipped with a bundle of fluff with waggy tail, named Tilly. Ken is very sensitive to the needs of those who may not be comfortable around dogs. We would barely have known she was there most of the time, as like us, she was very happy on a chair in front of the incredible views.

Tips:

There are so many breathtaking spots around Dunoon. We visited Toward, Castle Lachlan, Fyne Ales, The Strone Cafe, Tighnabruaich, Blairmore. Wherever we went, people were friendly and helpful.

Such a friendly guest house from arriving until leaving. Definitely one to return to and confidently recommend to others. Situated on the shoreline with fabulous different views every day. We saw 5 Bottlenose dolphins and porpoises during our stay along with various navy ships, boats and even a submarine! We stayed in room 4 which was a luxurious king with a large ensuite. Tastefully decorated with great views from the comfortable seats situated in front of the huge windows. A large choice was offered at breakfast including the usual hot & cold foods but also haggis, haddock, salmon and a delicious brie & bacon crumpet. One morning we even had homemade rhubarb freshly picked locally. Thanks Ken, for making me eat Tunnocks teacakes and liquorice toffees everyday!!

Tips:

The Lorne restaurant and The Ardentinny Inn I would recommend for cocktails and dinner. Pucks Glen was great for an interesting walk with a waterfall and Benmore Gardens a must! Their ice cream and homemade cakes in the van outside were delicious and well deserved after our wandering around the beautiful gardens. Driving out along any of the coast roads were spectacular wherever you ended up!

All was very comfortable and immaculately clean. Breakfast was delicious - we had full bacon & egg breskfast the first day and smoked salmon and scrambled egg the second - all excellent.

Nice little touches, which are not always available in high end hotels, such as bottled water, Tunnocks tea cakes, herbal tea and bathroom extras such as cotton pads & buds, hand sanitiser and bath robes. As returnees we know to choose room 4 with its amazing views over the water. We always try to book in here when visiting family in the area.

Excellent service and top class highland hospitality. Very comfortable accommodation, and although the bed was comfortable, bedroom well laid out my room did not have the en-suite, but a shower room for exclusive use of guests in this room. Food excellent, service excellent as was off road parking at the front. Tilly (the wee dug) was very welcoming, friendly and a great character. Your host at the Douglas Park is very accommodating and can even provide needle and thread for the repair of seams etc. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at the DP the room was lovely and we had a beautiful sea view just sitting looking out over the water was so calming, and our host Ken couldn’t do enough for us, the breakfast is amazing, any kind of cooked breakfast you want including smoked salmon or smoked haddock or kippers, and the usual, bacon, black pudding, haggis, sausage, ect and eggs anyway you want them, they even have a DP specialty crumpet with bacon & brie, ken is very kind and considerate, and we definitely will be back in the near future. Sandra & Paul from Glasgow.

Tips:

The Argyle hotel has lovely food, and the Italian restaurant next door that is part of the hotel, the food is lovely in there also, we also had a nice meal at the Lorne, if it’s a sunny day it’s just nice to walk along the beach. There’s also putting and swimming if it’s opened, there’s also an activity place for bigger children, with archery ect, although we were not there long enough to go many places, and we only had one really sunny day.

Home from Home as soon we stepped through the door. Amazing breakfasts and would recommend the porridge with a dram of Whisky to start and then Bacon, Brie and Sweet Chilli Crumpet. We had an amazing view from our room and at night sat and watched the Porpoises and the Fishermen gathering their Creels. There were a pair of Binoculars in the room along with hot water bottles, which were a lovely touch. Ken made us feel like family and little Tilly loved cuddles and her belly rubbed. I cannot recommend this place enough and so glad we chose here and not the St Ives, which I did not like the look of once seeing in true light in Dunoon! Room tip - upgrade to King Bed Room!

Tips:

It’s a 20 minute flat easy walk into Dunoon. We visited a lovely Vintage Tea Room called Deja vu for lunch and they did amazing soup, Toasties and Home Baking. The Argyll is nice for dinner and from 4,30 they do two courses for £9.95 and the courses are a good size. Drive to Oban if you can and also take the road to Portavadie- Breathtaking scenery!

Immaculately presented guest house, staff welcoming and friendly. Beautiful views and gorgeous rooms. One of the best guest houses I have stayed in personally, it was just pristine throughout with beautiful decor and very homely. The breakfast options were outstanding and you must try the haggis or a wee dram in your porridge. Ken the owner made us feel so welcome.

Tips:

If you love to walk there’s plenty at nearby Benmore anything from beginner to a bit more strenuous with gorgeous views of Loch Eck and/or the beautiful Scottish landscape and forests. Taking a right out of the guest house towards loch striven you can appreciate the lovely views of the Isle of Bute and Cumbria. The holy loch and loch long are on your doorstep too so it’s a great base to see several Scottish lochs over a few days.

1st November 2019:

The Douglas Park Guest House is lovely, our room was very nice and extremely comfortable. Ken and Shona are lovely people. Ken was a very attentive host - nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was delicious and served very promptly. The views from the breakfast room are stunning- a fantastic way to start your day! However, beware the Tunnocks tea cake you will find on your tea tray they are very very addictive!!!

Tips:

Take the Colintraive Ferry to Bute. We had a great day wandering around Mount Stuart (the House wasn’t open but the grounds are incredible.) Have lunch at the Kingarth Hotel and Smiddy Bar; beautiful food, wonderful hosts and a warm and cosy welcome! Then drive to Scalpsie Beach to look at the basking seals - paradise! Back to Dunoon, have dinner at the Lorne or 51st State both very different, but both offer the friendly Scottish welcome we came to expect! Want a coffee? Pop and see Rosemary in the Rock cafe! Lovely mug of coffee and a chip butty!!! Everywhere you go you will blow your mind with the stunning views - we can’t wait to return!

My best experience ever in the most beautiful guesthouse run by the kindest and friendly hosts. Perfect place, immaculate clean and so beautifully decorated. Lovely room, very comfortable bed and super nice shower. Really enjoyed the detail of the chocolate marshmallow treat every evening. Great options for breakfast, delicious and abundant. I felt extremely welcomed and I appreciated all recommendations, help and tips from Ken. I only stayed for two nights but I will definitely come back and stay longer. I totally recommend staying in Douglas Park Guesthouse.

Tips:

I came to Dunoon for a short stay because I wanted to visit Benmore Botanic Gardens. I only stayed for 2 days, which I think was too short as there is so much to see all around! I'd love to come back, to see Benmore Gardens again (around May when the rhododendrons will be blossoming) and to move around, explore and discover the many wonderful things around.

We were warmly greeted with tea and homemade shortbread. Kenneth and Shona were friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely with lots of thoughtful touches and there was a view over the water from the sitting room, where binoculars and a telescope were there to watch the porpoises. Breakfast was perfectly cooked and the porridge, served with cream and whisky, was a real treat. We only stayed one night as we are travelling to Mull. It is an exceptional B&B.

Tips:

We met up with friends for fish and chips at Anselmo’s. Very good fish and “twice dipped” chips and homemade tartare sauce. The Castle museum was closed as we were there in the evening but it’s a nice walk up to the viewpoint.

A very warm welcome awaited me at Douglas Park . This was a return visit for me and everything was just as I remembered it. Very comfortable room with lovely bed linen and towels. The hot water bottle was a very welcome addition, not because I was cold, but I found it extremely comforting as I was recovering from a bereavement. The breakfast was every bit as delicious as I remembered. I would highly recommend Douglas Park as a wonderful place to stay on a visit to Cowal.

Douglas Park was an incredible property. It was immaculately clean. Everywhere. If you could rate above the standard this guest house would definitely get extra marks. The whole guest house looks like it has just been newly refurbished. The decor is modern and elegant. The rooms were spacious and if you choose to get a front room the view is spectacular. There is free parking but if you don’t have a car there is a bus straight outside the door that takes you into town, to the ferries, to your next destination. Ken, our host, was so helpful. He recommended places for dinner that were excellent. He knew the bus and ferry schedules off by heart he helped us to organize ordering flowers for a friend we were going on to visit. Breakfast was included and was absolutely delicious. Don’t pass this up!! Service was prompt and attentive. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone!! Thank you, Ken and Shona, for making us feel so welcome and taken care of during our stay!!

Tips:

If Ken recommends Livingstones (Italian)and/or The Lorne (Family style pub) believe him. They were amazing. Great service and even better food!!

Rave reviews on travel websites motivated us to chose this guesthouse. What we experienced surpassed our expectations. The rooms and bathrooms are stunningly beautiful and furnished with exquisite taste. We had a sizable and very comfortable room with a large bay window overlooking the scenic Firth of Clyde. Shona and Kenneth went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one providing lots of tips on places to visit and walks in Argyll. The location Dunoon is the perfect gateway for visiting the highlands served with a very convenient,regular and reliable car and passenger ferry service crossing the Firth to Gourock which is just a 55 minute drive from Glasgow. When we return to visit the highlands this guest house will be the first on our list as a base.

Hi and thank you MT for a great 5 out of 5 review. We were very pleased to meet you and it was a pleasure to have you stay with us at Douglas Park.Thank you for your comments on how comfortable you were in DP and how you enjoyed your visit to our beautiful area.

We mistakenly booked the wrong two nights. When we arrived they were booked full and therefore could not accommodate our error. They promptly found similar accommodations for us a short distance away and even provided transportation. They were so helpful and we were extremely grateful and I hope we get another opportunity to stay there.

We could not fault our stay at Douglas Park. Everything was perfect from our time of arrival. Wonderful welcome, food for breakfast spot on , seated in a well positioned room overlooking the sea. Even the dolphins performed on cue. Recommendations for meal at Livingston’s was so good we went back a second night. The Botanic Gardens are well worth a couple of hours and Trip out to Otters Ferry for sea food - my whole crab ! Yum !!! the drive great.

Tips:

Easy access from Glasgow via Gaurok to Dunoon by ferry. Botanical Gardens, Strone Inn for pub lunch, otters Ferry, Isle of Bute, walks in the National parks of various lengths and difficulty. Dolphin watching, fishing off the wharf at Strone Inn

Beautiful guest house in a lovely location. The room is one of the nicest rooms we have ever stayed in, really gorgeous decor and a beautiful view. We had a nice little table and two comfortable chairs by the window to enjoy the view and there was also some binoculars to watch the wildlife. Nice touches include lots of tea, coffee, hot chocolate, biscuits and tunnocks tea cakes! Lovely large bed, with good quality linen and very nice bathroom with large shower. Breakfast was excellent - the first morning I had a muffin with bacon and brie, my husband had full Scottish breakfast, both were excellent. The following morning we both had smoked haddock with poached egg. I would definitely recommend this guest house and the lovely hosts, Ken and Shona who were helpful and friendly.

Tips:

An evening meal at Livingstones, John Street, Dunoon, proved to be the correct choice. Friendly greeting and waitress who was discreetly attentive and with a sense of humour. Four adults at our table and everyone very happy. Pizza was my choice and it was excellently done. Reasonable pricing was a bonus and we would definitely return.

We stayed four nights in this little gem. The owners Shona and Ken are lovely genuine people who made us so welcome from the moment we arrived. The rooms are beautiful and well furnished. The bed, (we had the "Princess" bed) extremely comfortable, The little "extras" such as chocolates, tea cakes and fresh water every day were a nice touch. Breakfast was wonderful with a great choice of menu, which really did set us up for the day. The house has stunning views over the Clyde......first morning we saw a submarine, the following morning we saw dolphins from the breakfast room! We would return to the Douglas Park in a heartbeat........they are truly deserving of their 5* status........highly recommend!

Tips:

The Douglas Park is situated in a lovely area, with wonderful walks nearby. A visit to Benmore Botanic Gardens is a must! You should allow a couple of hours to see it all, then a lovely coffee/lunch in the little cafe! Dunoon has lots of lovely restaurants to chose from. We ate at the Livingstone, The Lorne, The Osbourne and the local Indian (the name escapes me). Not once were we disappointed. The surrounding scenery is simply stunning......lots of crystal clear lochs, forests and sightings of wild deer, pheasant, partridge, eagles and sea birds. We intend to return at a different time of year next time, perhaps late Spring, but I've a feeling you won't be disappointed whichever season you choose to visit this beautiful area.

We booked the twin room for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated with luxurious touches. We had lovely views onto the garden and the beds were very comfortable. Our private bathroom was a few steps down the landing, which was no problem as bathrobes were provided. The breakfast room and guest lounge both offered stunning sea views of the Firth of Clyde, ideal for spending a rainy afternoon with a good book. The guest house owners Shona and Ken were the perfect hosts and went out their way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. They provided us with local information and suggestions for things to do. We appreciated the little treats we found each night in our room and the breakfast was very good and varied, with fresh fruit - strawberries and blueberries! - provided every morning. We can highly recommend Douglas Park Guest House and would not hesitate to stay here again. Thanks again Shona and Ken for looking after us so well.

Tips:

We found plenty of things to do during our stay including hill walking and visiting interesting and picturesque places like Tarbert and Inveraray. Dunoon had all the amenities and plenty of good restaurants and pubs. Our drive to Otter Ferry, where we had lunch at the "Oyster Catcher" pub/restaurant was well worth it. We can highly recommend their seafood dishes and the location at the seafront is just stunning.

Breakfasts were just great, set up for the day, especially liked Ken's poached eggs, and the haggis. Would have no problem in recommending this lovely B&B for a stay in Dunoon, we'll be back.

Tips:

Lots to see and do, just ask Ken & Shona, they have loads of info and local knowledge, we were on a different mission, but took in some of the sights, particularly a trip on the Waverley, but just get yourselves out and drive, lots to do, even if the weather isn't quite the best !!!!

Great guest house. Hosts are very attentive and will advise you very kindly about what to do around and things to see. The whole house is very clean and very well decorated with a point of old fashioned cozyness. Scottish breakfast was very well prepared in a dining room facing the see. It was for sure the best place to stay during my trip to Scotland.

Tips:

It's not far away of Loch Lommond and the Natural park aside.

Wonderful couple running a beautiful B and B. Cozy and comfy. A perfect home from home. Ken and Shona make you feel very welcome and will help wherever they can. Would highly recommend staying here.

Tips:

Dunoon center is a short 25 minute walk or there is a bus right across the street. Two ferrys close by. A few good restaurants in town. LIvingstons, Lorne Bar, Osbornes plus a few more. A few shops downtown too. Driving for up to an hour takes you to Stuart Castle, Inverary (lovely town), Ilse of Bute, Glasgow is not too far for a day trip (ferry/train), Loads of hiking!! The guesthouse was in a quiet area so if this is what you are looking for it is a perfect spot to relax.

Our time at the guest house was incredibly, mesmerising and short. We found a place where we feel at peace with the environment, in harmony with the amazing people of Dunoon and ever so kind hosts Shona and Ken, whom we honestly thank for the beautiful house they created and for showing us again the true hospitality and warmth. They welcomed us to their house with open harms and took the time to make us feel part if their household. We hope to see you both soon for a tastefully breakfast and spontaneous conversation. Moreover , I may also add that the sea views, the dolphins passing by and the birds singing must be inspiration enough for anyone to feel better oneself. Once again thank you for everything.

Tips:

Go around visit the other villages nearby, contemplate the many lochs and forests. Take time at the sea front, visit the many castles and do not forget to taste the amazing, traditionally battered and fried fish and chips at Anselmo's cosy place.

We had a great stay with amazing views across the Firth of Clyde. Watching Porpoises, Seals and plenty of bird life in the bay from our bedroom window was very special. We loved it and will be going back soon.

Kenneth and Shona made us feel most welcome. Our bedroom facing the Clyde was absolutely beautiful There were little extras in the room, like the beautiful Dunoon tea set. Our breakfast was absolutely lovely with everything made to order. ......none of that under the silver covers,, made an hour earlier!! Another touch was the home made marmalade........lovely!

Tips:

We travelled to Portavadie Marina and enjoyed a lovely lunch We visited Creggans Inn at Strachur and enjoyed a dinner and a bar lunch. These is a very good book shop in Dunoon, where I enjoyed browsing. The Shop selling Dunoon China is well worth a visit. The renovated Burgh Hall hosts Art Exhibitions . More upmarket eating places open on Sunday's please!

Quite possibly the most welcoming and comfortable guest house we have stayed in, and we are seasoned travellers! Our bedroom with a direct view of the loch was lovely and I remarked that I would have been quite happy to stay for a month. Nothing was too much trouble for Shona and Ken. The home made walnut cake was delicious and it was particularly nice to have a really good selection of fresh fruit for breakfast. We would certainly stay again if in the area.

Had a very nice dinner in Livingstone's restaurant next to Morrison's supermarket in town.

We usually go for the privacy and convenience of a large hotel but this guesthouse was better in every way with friendly, open, helpful but unintrusive owners. Everything was just perfect, lovely big room that looked freshly decorated and was immaculately clean and with a cracking view. The small touches made the room ...like a teapot and lovely cups, bedside mints and home made tablet to die for. 08.45 as last call for breakfast was perhaps a little early for a sunday morning but well worth getting up for. We would highly recommend the Douglas Park and will definately stay again if in Dunoon.

I had a wonderful stay at Douglas Park. Ken and Shona were extremely helpful and made amazing breakfast and dinner if you wanted. This is a beautiful place to stay and just what I needed after staying in the big cities. I highly recommend staying here!

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay. We felt really welcomed and well looked after and the view from our room was spectacular, especially in the unexpected bright Dunoon sunshine. Tea by the fire when I first arrived was a lovely way to settle in, and our room and bed were very comfortable and relaxing. Breakfast was also delicious!

Tips:

The walk along the seafront is really beautiful and relaxing, even on quite a blustery day. You can walk for miles on the flat and we'd recommend the walk from Douglas Park Guest House to West Bay and on to walk through Morag's Fairy Glen. We gather the walk on to Toward Lighthouse is also wonderful - we'll be doing that next time. If it's a sunny day we'd recommend getting fish and chips from the shop on Queen Street (walk back a few blocks from the seafront), and eating them on a bench by the sea, looking out over the water bathed in warm evening light. We'd also highly recommend Benmore Gardens - huge, unusual and very grand hillside gardens and paths - and climbing up to the viewing point there. You can do the journey to the gardens by bus, but make sure to check the schedule first - ask before you leave and/or ask at the gardens.

Warm and friendly welcome. Excellent breakfast choice and the full breakfast was excellent.

Tips:

Twenty minutes walk into Dunoon. The Braes restaurant/pub offers a good choice of food. During the summer they have a roof top terrace. The old jail in Inveraray is worth a visit, its interesting to see how criminals were punished back in the 1800's.

The house is absolutely beautiful and well set up for guests. I especially loved the sitting room with a view of the water. Breakfast was plentiful and well done with everything I could have ask for. The shower and bathroom facilities were clean and modern with plentiful hot water. The local bus stop is so convenient, just outside the front gate, and the town Dunoon is just a 15 minute walk. The only down side is that I only got to stay two nights.

Tips:

The Botanical Garden is a definite must see. The Bus stops just outside the front gate (be sure to purchase a round trip ticket).

We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us in Douglas Park on the glorious sea front in the village of Kirn. As you didn't have a car, it was good that you made use of the bus service that passes our front door. Yes Benmore is a real gem. The colours especially at this time of year are fantastic. Hopefully we will see you back at DP in the not too distant future. Ken & Shona

Excellent hosts, sense of humour, caring and informative for newcomers to Scotland. Unbeatable property and cleaner than clean along with a breakfast that will fuel you for the balance of the day.

Tips:

We were staying for a very short time prior to boarding Argyll Cruising's Splendour for a trip along the western isles and lochs...all that to say we have no experience with restaurants. A nice walk along the water will take you to Dunoon a mile away....

Very helpful and generous. We had a long wait until our next stop-well after checkout but were offered the use of the sitting room and given tea while we waited for the cab to take us to Holy Loch Marina.

Tips:

Went for a six day cruise on the Argyll Cruising boat the Splendour. We went to the islands (including Ailsa Craig to see the Gannets' nesting area, ) Arran, Bute and much more. Saw seals, whales and amazing birds. Highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at Douglas Park. Shona &Ken made us feel so welcome in their home. The room was fantastic spacious and everything you could possibly need, and the en-suite was amazing, the power shower was absolutely brilliant so invigorating, I would recommend this guest house to anyone it was truly a pleasure to stay there, and Shona & Ken are a lovely couple, they couldn't do enough for you. Definitely 5* or above.

Tips:

The Braes pub served lovely food and the staff were very welcoming. Rio Italian was very nice good pizzas also the 51st state American/Italian was also very good. We visited Inveraray which was very quaint.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this lovely place. The B&B has been renovated and is very cozy, yet offers all modern amenities. Ken and Shona are wonderful hosts, we had a great time! Upon arrival, they offered us tea, coffee, cakes and had a lot of tipps ready to share. Our room #4 overlooks the Firth of Clyde where you can spot a lot of animals, or watch all the fishing boats go by. The breakfast we were served was delicious, there is a big choice of cooked breakfast, but also the Continental is available together with lots of fresh fruit and Muesli. We highly recommend this beautiful place to travellers who look for a stay in a more intimate environment than a hotel would offer.
