     What to see & do and where to go

    The very accessible Cowal Peninsula offers mountains, lochs and fjords, forests and glens. Hill walking, cycling, fishing, sailing, bird & wildlife watching, golf, mountain biking, photography and a host of other pursuits are on the doorstep. The world’s biggest Highland Gathering is held in Dunoon every August. Inveraray, Oban, Glencoe, Loch Lomond, Dunoon and the Firth of Clyde coast are easily reached from the lodge. A daytrip to Edinburgh, Glasgow or Stirling is equally straightforward. Two of our guests recently spent a day birdwatching on Islay and investigating the Laphroaig distillery!

    Feòrag Lodge is one of a small collection of lodges located on the Western edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park within the Argyll Forest Park. It is less than a mile’s walk to the celebrated Benmore Botanic Garden with its towering Douglas Firs, giant Redwoods and miles of trails and walks. The lodge itself sits right by Puck’s Glen where miles of tracks offer spectacular views and wonderful walks. There is a vast range of hiking opportunities locally from wandering the high tops, to long coastal hikes with the enchantment of deep glens in between. Loch Eck, probably Scotland’s most beautiful freshwater glacial loch lies just a mile away from Feòrag Lodge. The coasts of Loch Fyne and the Firth of Clyde are fifteen minutes away. One of the most favoured trips is the circular drive to Tighnabruaich  via Glen Lean, Loch Striven and Loch Riddon where the highpoint view over the Kyles of Bute is breathtaking and returning via Milhouse, Loch Fyne side and Strachur.

    The beautiful Georgian town of Inverary is forty five minutes away on the west side of Loch Fyne and offers Inverary Castle, the home of the Dukes of Argyll.

    For those happy to travel a little further afield, Glasgow is approximately one and a half hours away and Edinburgh is two and a half hours with their cultural, historic and retail attractions. They are both easy daytrips using Western Ferries from Hunter’s Quay (four miles from Feòrag Lodge) to Gourock, the road from which soon has you on the M8.

    The Trossachs and the glories of Perthshire and Stirlingshire are roughly two hours away while the local town of Dunoon with a wide array of shops is just fifteen minutes by car. Dunoon has an excellent swimming pool and gym and is the home of Cowal Golf Club, a superb course designed by the celebrated James Braid in 1891. Dunoon is also the site of the world’s largest annual Highland Gathering, the Cowal Games, a celebration of Highland culture with pipe bands, World Championship Highland Dancing, ceilidh tent, childrens' entertainment, firework display, heavy athletics and a march-past of over 100 pipe bands.  "The Games" takes place on the last weekend of August.

    Road Directions


    SAT-NAV USERS. The post code for Feòrag Lodge is PA23 8QT but beware – the area covered is rather large!


    Feòrag Lodge lies in a tranquil position on the Lamont Lodges site on the east side of the A815 north of Dunoon/Hunter’s Quay. It lies between the Holy Loch and Benmore Botanic Gardens close to magical Puck’s Glen.


    If travelling from/via the Glasgow area, drive to the end of M8, and continue through Greenock and Gourock on the A8/A770. Approx. a mile south of Gourock you will reach McInroy’s Point on the right. This is the departure point for Western Ferries’ service to Hunter’s Quay. The frequent crossings last c. 20 mins and tickets may be bought on board. For fares and schedule information, please see http://www.western-ferries.co.uk. (skip next paragraph)

    If travelling up from Ayrshire, follow A78 coastal road joining A770 shortly after Inverkip. Follow A770 for c. 3 miles and McInroy’s Point (Western Ferries – see link above) will be on your left.

    The following directions now apply.

    After disembarking at Hunter’s Quay, turn right on to the A815. Follow the coast road until reaching a T- junction in Sandbank. Turn right and follow this road around the head of Holy Loch.

    After a couple of miles you will pass Cot House Services on your right (Note: the nearest garage and mini supermarket to Feòrag Lodge!). Continue on A815 and shortly you will pass the entrance to Puck’s Glen on your right. Turn in at the “Lamont Lodges” sign c. 400 yds. further along on the right. Once on site, swing left and Feòrag Lodge (No. 10) is set on slightly higher ground roughly 100 yards on the right. The private parking place is adjacent to the steps leading up to the lodge area.


    If travelling by road from other parts of Scotland and not using the ferry from Gourock, you must eventually join the northern end of the A815 where it joins the A83 just east of Cairndow. The A83 is the road which connects Arrochar to Inveraray and includes the Rest & Be Thankful. Once on the A815 head for Dunoon via Strachur. Some 4 miles after leaving Strachur, you will reach Loch Eck, a 7 mile long glacial loch. Continue past the southern end of Loch Eck and shortly you will pass Benmore Gardens on the right. Please slow down at this point as it is roughly 1 mile from the gates of Benmore Gardens to the entrance to Lamont Lodges on the left. Once on site, swing left and Feòrag Lodge (No. 10) is set on slightly higher ground roughly 100 yards on the right. The private parking place is adjacent to the steps leading up to the lodge area.
