Dunbartonshire lies to the North of Glasgow and is set within idyllic countryside with a spectacular range of outdoor pursuits. It is also home to Dumbarton Castle which sits upon Dumbarton Rock and dominates the area. Dunbartonshire boasts a great collection of activities for you to enjoy whilst on a luxury self-catering break including golfing, walking, cycling, horse riding, adventure activities and some water sports. There are also opportunities for fishing and orienteering. Loch Lomond is easily accessible for day trips from much of Dunbartonshire. With the various lochs and country walks on offer in the Loch Lomond National Park, this is a very special place.
The town of Dumbarton emerged in the 19th century as a centre for shipbuilding, glassmaking and whisky production. Nowadays these industries have declined and the town has become a commuter town for Glasgow. With Loch Lomond so close by a huge array of activities and days out is open to a visitor to Dumbarton. On the other hand if you would prefer not to get active and are looking for more of a relaxed holiday environment, Dunbartonshire can also provide some lovely places of interest for you to visit such as Loch Lomond Aquarium, Mugdock Country Park and The Hill House in Helensburgh in nearby Argyll and Bute.
Whether you opt for a relaxed cottage holiday or action packed stay, we hope you find the best cottage to suit you in Dunbartonshire.
