Dunoon and Cowal
This selection of wheels related photographs features modes of transport ranging from horse-drawn coaches to buses, cars, lorries, paddle steamers and even a steamroller. Illustrating a large but sparsely populated area, Old Dunoon and Cowal charts the development and vital importance of road transport in this part of Argyll. Combined with steamer services, the road network and the vehicles that plied it meant that most parts of the peninsula were accessible to both local people and tourists using public transport. Locations featured include Sandbank, Coylet Inn, Inverchapel pier, Innellan, Strachur, Kames, Glendaruel, Cairndow Hotel, Port Lamont, Strone and Lochgoilhead, while lots of pictures show vehicles en route at famous scenic locations around Cowal.
