Innellan

This peaceful and pretty village on the edge of the Clyde is on the east shore of the Cowal peninsula, just four miles from Dunoon. All my photos were taken from Shore Road.








I thought this gate was very attractive!




The view across the Clyde towards Inverkip



We came across this tub of apples on a public bench - such a friendly idea to offer them to strangers!

The post office/grocers is the only shop left in the village now although there used to be fourteen

I hope to be back there next year - the whole of the Cowal is delightful

Hi Jane

Thanks for the comments on my blog. Interested to see your latest post is on Innellan - I can see my great aunt's old house in one of your photos! I've been meaning to take my wife there for a while.

Jane said...

Thanks Robert - nice I managed to include your great aunt's house!

I used to live in Inellan. Nice but not that nice....I wouldn't go back. It's too built up. Would prefer somewhere like Isle of Jura.

Jane said...

Thanks 'Anonymous' - nice to hear from someone who lived there! I haven't been to Jura so far, the nearest to it I've visited was Crinan...

Hello Jane. I wondered if you'd mind my using your 3rd photo down in our church's Parish Magazine to illustrate an artivle about the hymn writer, George Matheson, who was the minister at Inellan around the turn of the 19/20th centuries. I'd give an attribution of course.
Many thanks
