Positano is a spacious, modern house that was refurbished throughout in 2005, and again with three new bedrooms in 2010, to an exceptionally high standard, offering accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis. Located very centrally in the town of Dumbarton (15 minutes from Glasgow Airport; and minutes away from Loch Lomond). Although on a main road, our main entrance is at the back of the house (off the main road), with a big garden and back yard, with ample private parking facilities for your car (complimentary for our guests). You really wouldn't know that we're on a main road at all. None of our rooms suffer from traffic noise - we have the best of both worlds: a convenient, easy to find location that is ideal as a touring base for this area of western Scotland; and beautiful, peaceful accommodation. We offer a friendly and helpful family service.
Dumbarton (Ancient Capital of Strathclyde) is a fantastic town to use as your touring base for this area of Scotland, with Loch Lomond only minutes away by car. We're only a 15 minute drive from Glasgow Airport on the west coast; Prestwick Airport is about 55 minutes away southwards; and Edinburgh Airport on the east coast is a 70 minute drive. You will find it difficult to find a town more central for visiting interesting and popular places in the north, south or east (we are located in the west). Whether it's the city or tranquil countryside you are after - or a bit of both, we have the best of both worlds.
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, Balloch, Helensburgh and Cardross are right on our doorstep to the north; we are ideal for day trips to places such as Luss, Callander, Dunoon, Inveraray, Aberfoyle and Oban (all north from us). Stirling (60 minute drive), Blair Drummond Safari & Adventure Park (outside Stirling, circa 45 minutes from us); Falkirk (60 minute drive east), Edinburgh (70-75 minutes east from us); then to our south (along the west coast) there is Gourock, Skelmorlie, Largs, Troon, and down to Ayr (and the Ayrshire coast). Even Glencoe is only about a 90 minute drive to the north; and Fort William a 2 hour drive. Inland to our south, Clydebank is less than 10 minutes away; and Glasgow City Centre with it's wonderful museums, shops, restaurants and night life is also only 30 minutes away (the west end of Glasgow is slightly closer to us). And of course Dumbarton Castle is minutes walk away.
We are in a very central location in the town of Dumbarton itself. Less than a 10 minute walk from the town centre which has plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants; and there are many other excellent pubs and restaurants in the immediate area catering for every taste. We also have some beautiful local walks and cycling routes along the River Clyde, not to mention our very own castle - the oldest recorded stronghold in Great Britain.
