About Mike McDonald
Mike and Dinah McDonald arrived in Cowal 40 years ago and decided it was heaven. Mike was an Outdoor Education teacher, so if you want great suggestions for local walks, climbing, canoeing, biking, just ask. Dinah managed accommodation in Glasgow, from city centre hotels to social housing. She now owns Bookpoint, Dunoon's bookshop, where you can browse amongst 11,000 books, enjoy coffee and home baking, and choose from a wide selection of Scottish gifts.
Mike McDonald purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Mike McDonald chose Dunoon
We just love the variety and contrasts; only an hour away to the cosmopolitan european city of Glasgow, fine dining, art galleries, stunning museums, yet step off the ferry in Dunoon and you enter such a different world, a National Park of forests, mountains, coast, rivers, lochs, deer in the garden and eagles overhead. We had always been attracted by Post Office House when it was the village store and Post Office, a curious historic building in a fantastic location, so we didn't hesitate when it was for sale, derelict,12 years ago. Since then we have learnt new skills: scottish slating, stonemasonry, lime mortar, woodworking with oak, and stained glass to name just a few. Its finally finished (2013) and well worth the wait, and we love the end result.
What makes this Cottage unique
Despite the apparently small exterior, the open plan layout makes it surprisingly spacious for 2-3 visitors. Its been rebuilt to a very high standard, with period furniture, quirky woodwork, ever-changing views, original artwork, and a cosy stove.
