Scottish Cross Country Championships – Cycling

One of the main reasons lovers of the outdoors will be heading to the Dunoon area this September is for the SXC Scottish Championships. For mountain biking enthusiasts this is such an important event, and Dunoon is one of the best locations for the sport. It takes place on the 1st and 2nd of September!

Cowal Open Studios

From the 21 to 24th September, Cowal Open Studios will be happening. This is an event throughout the local Cowal villages where artists (of all varieties; painters, potters, sculptors, furniture makers etc.) will open their doors and welcome visitors! All over the Cowal area, Cairndow to Dunoon to Portavadie there will be lots of talent on display. The west of Scotland, in general, is very skilled when it comes to crafts, this will be an amazing opportunity to experience it!

Where to stay?


Tighnabruich is an ideal place to stay if your planning on visiting the area. It is situated on the Loch Fyne east coast and is one of the stops along the Cowal Way. Also, it’s a great destination for cycling, sailing and yachting.


Just a short distance away from Tighnabruich is the popular Portavadie Marina, which opened in 2010. It is another place that is an amazing location to base yourself from if you’re going to the Cowal Peninsula. You could either spend more time there during the Cowal Way, or return for a relaxing weekend once you’ve completed the trail. From here you will most definitely be able to make the most of your surroundings!
