It has a good range of local shops and services to cater for everyday needs. There are popular tourist shops and local hotels, country pubs and restaurants.

The area offers much in the way of outdoor pursuits including cycle routes, challenging hill climbs, walks and several golf courses. The recently established Cowal Way, known as Scotland in 57 miles, stretches from Portavadie in the west, travelling eastward.

Sea, river and loch fishing is also available in the area as are several commercially run game shoots. Some of the local estates allow stalking by prior arrangement.

For sailors the sea lochs of the west of Scotland offer safe anchorages as well as spectacular coastal sailing; there are marina and chandlery services in the south at Portavadie, Dunoon, Rhu and Inverkip and to the north west at Ardfern in Loch Craignish for easy western isles and coast access.
