The journey time to Glenstriven by helicopter is about 15 minutes.
With its many islands, peninsulas and sea lochs, Argyll has thousands of miles of coastline and, as such, the sea is a feature of the working life and leisure time of its inhabitants.
The quality of sailing off the Argyll coast and Inner Hebrides is of world renown. In addition to the two deep-water moorings owned by the vendors, there are several well-established commercial marinas within close range of Glenstriven at Dunoon, Rothesay, Port Bannatyne, Inverkip and Portavadie.
In terms of land-based activities, there are golf courses at Innellan (9 holes) and Dunoon (18 holes). Further afield there are internationally renowned golf courses at Loch Lomond and on the Ayrshire coast at Royal Troon, Trump Turnberry and Prestwick. The vendors are keen golfers and have, on several occasions, enjoyed day trips to the Ayrshire courses via a fixed hull (inboard) RIB. The journey time to Turnberry (the southernmost of the courses) is about 1½ hours in calm sea conditions.
With many islands to explore, mountains to climb, lochs to fish, pubs and restaurants to dine at throughout Argyll, there is a fantastically diverse range of activities within a drive of an hour or so of Glenstriven.
