On the eastern coast of the Cowal Peninsula lies Colintraive, a small village which sits at the narrowest point along the shores of the Kyles of Bute.
Colintraive has a small hotel with a bar and restaurant, a delightful community garden with picnic places and a welcoming bowling green. Step back in time at The Colintraive Heritage Centre and discover the story of the village and its farming heritage over the last 150 years. There are pleasant walks along the shore of the Kyles of Bute, great for walkers and cyclists, leading to a small 19th century church.
The village can be easily accessed by the CalMac car ferry which sails from Rhubodach on the Isle of Bute opposite with its many attractions. The ferry only takes a few minutes.
