Angling and fishing

The "warm" waters of the Firth of Clyde offer rich pickings for the sea angler. There are many rocky outcrops along the coastline of the area that are easily accessed and give plenty of opportunity for sea fishing for mackerel to conger eels, as do the sheltered piers of Dunoon, Lochgoilhead and Tighnabruaich.
