Travelling to Dunans by taxi: We’re recommending two drivers from Dunoon who provide a great service!

By Dixon-Spain

Following discussions with local transport providers we have decided it is about time to make some recommendations for Lairds and Ladies travelling to and from Dunans from Dunoon (and further afield as well).

Over the last couple of years we have been delighted at the service that Taxi George ( 07913 601442) has provided to both our friends and Lairds and Ladies. One of his first trips was with newly weds from California – and they couldn’t recommend his tour more. The photo above is taken on the way to Tighnabruaich with our dear friend Emma.

We also recommend David Morrison (07974597564).

In both cases we know our Lairds and Ladies will get a fair deal for the right price. We’ve left their details etc. on the “Visiting Dunans” page on our Lairds and Ladies website.
