Visit Rosneath and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Rosneath, Argyll and Bute. A small resort on the Gare Loch, Rosneath is popular as a yachting centre. In the village is St Modan's Well, indicating the spot where a church was founded by St Modan in the 7th century, to which pilgrims came to take the healing waters of the well.
At the South East extremity of the bay is the ruin of an old castle, which about 1630 was fitted up as the second residence of the Marquess of Argyll. Burnt in 1802, it was replaced on a new site in the following year by an Italian palace-style mansion, recently demolished, and at one time the residence of Princess Louise.
It has been suggested that Rosneath has some connections with William Wallace, a fact which may be authenticated by the nearby landmark known as Wallace's Leap, from which Wallace is believed to have jumped on horseback to make his escape across the loch to Cairndhu Point.
