Charming country pubs and a wealth of outdoor activities await

Dunbartonshire holiday cottages

UK | Scotland | South Scotland | Dunbartonshire

Stretching from Loch Lomond in the north to the outskirts of Glasgow in the south, Dunbartonshire is a diverse region with plenty to do and see. This beautiful area of Scotland sits level with Edinburgh but on the opposite coast and is just a short journey away from the fine city of Glasgow. The landscape of Dunbartonshire gives it a real Scottish identity; rugged upland and sweeping moorlands provide outstanding backdrops to thriving communities such as Alexandria, Dumbarton and Clydebank.

When staying at a holiday cottage in Dunbartonshire, visit the famous castles at Dumbarton or Balloch, the former sited on volcanic rock overlooking the River Clyde. Tour around the southern tip of the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond itself, taking in the wildlife of an RSPB reserve or an aquarium. Or if the weather turns a little dubious, head to Clydebank and test your skills at the indoor karting centre or take the kids to Monkey Madness for some soft play adventures.

Great local shopping, charming country pubs and a wealth of outdoor activities mean there’s something for everyone to enjoy here. Try pony trekking around Loch Lomond or get off the ground with an ariel adventure course through the trees at TreeZone. If water sports are your thing, you’re in luck with canoeing, river sledging, gorge walking, river tubing, canyoning and more all available on the loch. If you want to stay on dry land, you can visit a bird of prey centre or traverse the many cycling trails along the West Loch Lomond Cycle Path.

Year-round festivals bring fun to its streets and farmers' markets are a popular gathering place on weekends. Whether you’re looking to relax or explore on holiday this year, Dunbartonshire offers a little bit of everything.
