A wider range of services is provided in Dunoon, with a good selection of shops, professional services, a hospital with A&E and secondary school with sports and community leisure facilities.

Gourock also has a railway station with frequent services to Paisley (for Glasgow airport) and Glasgow city centre.
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. There are several well-established commercial marinas within close range of Invervegain 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.
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 Flagstaff.
