Dunoon Scotland Videosof gems to see

Pucks Glen Scotland 

One of our Favourite walks in Scotland near Dunoon, this is close to Sandbank.

 

Leave the village and follow the signs for Glasgow, just before the Botanical Gardens you will see the sign for the Pucks Glen car park.

Kilmun Church

Kilmun Church Over a thousand years ago, an Irish holy man Fintan Munnu started one of the first Christian communities in the west of Scotland here.

 

The cell or chapel of Munnu gave the village its name: Kilmun.

 

Munnu became a Saint, and his reputation made Kilmun an important sacred place.

 

The powerful Campbell clan, who became Lords, Earls and then Dukes of Argyll, adopted it as their spiritual home.

Kilmun Arboretum

Since the 1930s, hundreds of species have been planted here to test their worth as timber producers. Many thrived – see for yourself as you explore Kilmun’s well-maintained paths. In the summer heat, the different scents are as striking as the different shapes and colours. John Jacksons Trail Yellow A brief introduction to the exotic species of the arboretum, taking in ornamental maple, Japanese cedar and Himalayan spruce. Eucalyptus Trail Visit some guests from Down Under on this breathtaking circuit of the arboretum. On a warm day, the wonderful aroma will transport you to the Australian bush. Conifer Trail Climb the hillside to encounter redwood and sequoia from California and monkey puzzles from South America.

Ostell Bay or Kames Bay 

This is part of our Secret Scotland series and we look at a true gem on the coast, it is generally quiet as the is limited parking and a mile walk into the bay. 

We love to tie this with low tide to see the rock pools and walk along the sandy beach. The pools of water left behind heat up in the sun and make great places for children to play. PLEASE only take photos and leave footprints leaving this place as pristine as you found it, take ALL rubbish home.

Paddle Steamer Waverley on the River Clyde 

 

A trip on the Waverly is a must in Scotland

A detailed video of the iconic paddle steamer Waverley from Dunoon to Tighnabruaich and return through the Kyles of Bute past the Burnt Isles and the Clyde in Scotland. 

 

The Waverley is the last Sea Going paddlesteamer in the world. Journey with us on this iconic vessel in God's own country. This is part of the City Sailing Video Series and our Secret Coast Series, we hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends.

Dunoon The Camel's Hump

This is part of our Secret Scotland series and we look at another true gem. The Argyle is a secret coast that most folk pass on their way north missing some amazing spectacular things to see and do. This one is so close to the Western Ferries that most wizz past, it is a low-level walk and can easily be completed in two hours or longer with a picnic and time to admire the views. The scramble up the last part is safe and so well worth the views, you will need good walking shoes as the trees have recently been felled and it is a little uneven under foot.
