Many of our activities are water based; we have a good slipway for boat launching and maintain deep water moorings.
Largiemore’s beach is gravel and stone and provides hours of entertainment for children gathering sea creatures from under the rocks.
Touring and Sightseeing
Tour the magnificent Kyles of Bute, visit the Younger Botanic Gardens, the garrison town of Inverary or the award winning Mount Stuart House on the Isle of Bute. Alternatively, drive a little further to the picturesque village of Crinan and on to Oban or cross on the nearby Portavadie ferry to Tarbert, the Mull of Kintyre and the Isle of Gigha with it’s famous gardens.
Walking & Cycling
There are many miles of forestry tracks and beach walks close by including an easy stroll down to Kilbride Bay, one of Argyll’s best beaches.
The ten mile Ardlamont Loop, with its beautiful views across to Arran, is a favourite with walkers and cyclists of all ages.
Largiemore is an ideal location to view Argyll's wildlife with a diversity of species regularly visiting the site and observed through the chalet windows. Ornithologists love our variety of wild birds ranging from the finches, woodpeckers and tits that grace our bird tables to the many birds of prey that are ever present. Loch Fyne is home to a large colony of eider ducks and many other types of sea bird and waders.
On the loch, common and grey seals are resident all year, as are several small pods of porpoises with dolphins and whales making an occasional appearance.
Most of our local golf clubs welcome visitors, including the Kyles of Bute Golf Club at Tighnabruaich, which has a nine hole course with views over the Kyles. There are also courses at Dunoon, Innellan and Rothesay and the world famous links at Macrahanish are accessible via the Portavadie ferry.
There is good mackerel fishing in Loch Fyne from June through to September with the cod and haddock stocks showing signs of improvement and an occasional sea trout taken along the shoreline. Fresh water fly fishing is well catered for with day permits available on three local lochs managed by The Kyles of Bute Angling Club. The Dunoon & District Angling Club’s lochs require a slightly longer drive and Loch Fad on Bute has a good reputation for being well stocked with big fish.
Our “local”, The Oystercatcher, a pleasant 25 minute walk along the shore road, has a good choice of local real ales in a cosy bar and a varied menu featuring locally sourced seafood and game. The Inver Restaurant is about a twenty minute drive up the loch and offers a Scandinavian style contemporary take on traditional and forgotten Scottish dishes. Further afield, Tighnabruaich has several hotels and restaurants and the Oyster Bar at the head of Loch Fyne has featured on television regularly over the years.
We maintain an up to date list of local hostelries in the renting accommodation.
