Most underrated place in Scotland?
Tourism is a big part of the Scottish economy and the Highland Tour buses that ferry loads of people across well-known destinations like Loch Ness, Glencoe and Skye are aplenty. But on the other hand, my favourite experiences have been in places far from crowds.
I'd love to know what the most underrated place in Scotland is from the members of the community. The answer I came up with is Dunoon in the Cowal Peninsula, Argyll. It is only 1.5 hours from Glasgow Central and is home to one of Scotland's best walks (Puck's Glen) and best gardens (Benmore Botanical). Plus the town has a fantastic harbour view and is in striking distance of Argyll Forest Park & Inveraray.
Here are our reasons to visit Dunoon
