Rosneath

About This Project

THE ROSNEATH PENINSULA, is quiet, peaceful and very relaxing. Its name derives from the Gaelic ‘Rosneimhidh’, meaning a sanctuary – most appropriate as the visitor escapes from the hustle and bustle of modern life.

The villages of Cove, Clynder, Rosneath and Kilcreggan are secluded little communities, amidst natural beauty with a character of their own. LINN GARDENS, with a delightful Italiante villa set in 3 acres of sign-posted gardens, feature year-round colour, with over 200 species of rhododendron. There are also pleasure cruises to be enjoyed from KILCREGGAN PIER.
Other attractive villages dot the coastline, from Rhu adjacent to Helensburgh, with its popular marina and beautiful GLENARN GARDENS, past the Royal Navy’s Trident submarine base to Garelochead, again busy with yachtsmen enjoying the glorious sailing waters of the Clyde. The steep sided GLEN FRUIN, between Helensburgh and Loch Lomond, offers the charm and tranquillity of a Highland glen. A stone monument however, hints at less peaceful times when theMACGREGORS massacred the COLQUHOUNS in 1603.
