Dunoon is a resort town situated on the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, Scotland. It sits on the Firth of Clyde beside Holy Loch and opposite Gourock.
The Queen's Hall is the town's major multi-function hall complex. Situated at the head of the pier and built in 1958, the building houses four function suites and a large main hall. The main hall houses a full working stage with professional sound and lighting equipment and in recent years it has attracted popular bands such as Blur, The Saw Doctors, David Gray and Red Hot Chilli Pipers, among others.
Castle Toward, built in 1820 and formerly owned by the Lamont clan, is 6.5 miles (10.5 km) south of the town. It is now used as an outdoor education centre.
The arboretum at Benmore Botanic Garden, part of the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, is situated 7 miles (11 km) north of the town just before Loch Eck. The garden, formerly a private garden for the Younger family, is now open to the public. Its 150 acres (0.61 km2) feature some of the tallest trees in Britain, including an avenue of Giant Redwoods, some of which are over 120 feet (37 m) high.
