Small village on Cowal Peninsula that used to be point where cattle were swum across the straits on their way to market.
The village is one of a number of small villages in Cowal that it sometimes feels that times have forgotten. It lies just 100 yards across the straits to the Isle of Bute and there is a ferry that makes the crossing. The main source of activity is trippers passing through on their way to the Isle of Bute.
There is a local hotel, a new sculpture park in 2012 and a heritage centre in the village that was opened in 2009
