Two new apps celebrating the rich history of both towns, and promoting opportunities to visit and be active around Dunoon in Cowal and Rothesay in Bute.

Both these apps were produced for Argyll and Bute Council, working together with content creation consultants locally in each town.

Dunoon Forward App

The Dunoon Forward app has been developed in collaboration with local people and organisations, who have co-created content and shared fascinating insights into the social and cultural history of place.

5 curated trails take you on different journeys through the town, around the coast and up into the hills and forests. Trails have been designed for different levels of mobility and lengths of time, so you can choose the trail that suits your needs.

The Dunoon Forward guide was been supported by Transport Scotland, Paths for All and Argyll and Bute Council to encourage active travel and healthy living for all.

Discover Rothesay App

The Discover Rothesay app offers a series of self-guided walking and cycling trails to guide you through the islands unique blend of built heritage, breath-taking landscapes and stunning seascapes.

Read and listen to a series of locally curated stores about the islands past along the way, and visit special sites to unlock Augmented Reality views of the town in the past.

6 Self-Guided interactive walking trails. 7 Self-guided interactive cycling trails. Fun family challenges to spot features in and around the town.


All aspects of these apps were delivered on-time and within budget, in advance of the trail launch in autumn 2021.
