Children have endless fun searching the rock pools or fishing for crabs & other marine creatures of interest.

    Dykenamar is a much loved family home on half an acre of land with ever changing views over the river Clyde estuary. The bungalow occupies a prime position at the waterfront & is warm, welcoming, well equipped, & very comfortable. Relax in our comfortable lounge and just enjoy the constantly changing Firth of Clyde panorama as the light changes over the water. Garden furniture is also provided for the good days.
