Ardnadam Bay is approximately three miles from Dunoon, Cowal’s capital town and sits on the banks of the Holy Loch. The immediate area boasts a marina, sailing club, village shop / post office, pub, primary school, bowling club and a children’s play area with basketball / 5-a-side football pitch. The famous Benmore Botanic Garden and Loch Eck are just a couple of miles further north.
