You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Nice staff


185 E Clyde St, Helensburgh G84 7AG, UK – 01436 672865

Stayed in the coach house cottage rather than the B&B

Wir haben uns direkt sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Unterkunft war wirklich sehr beeindruckend. Die hohen Räume und der schöne Einrichtungsstil, haben uns gleich zugesagt. Unsere Gastgeberin war sehr aufmerksam und hat uns bestens bewirtet. Das Zimmer & Bad, so wie der Frühstücksraum, waren sauber und ordentlich. Das Frühstück war wirklich reichhaltig und es ist auf jeden Fall für jeden etwas vorhanden. Auch im Zimmer fand sich allerlei wie Tee, Kaffee, Kekse und Schokoriegel. Das macht auch nicht jeder. Das Einzige was wir nicht so gut fanden. Gebucht war ein Zimmer mit eigenem Bad. Doch als wir ankamen, gab es nur ein Gemeinschaftsbad, sprich, ein Bad mit Badewanne und eins mit Dusche für die gesamte untere Etage. Wie es sich mit der oberen Etage verhält, können wir leider nicht beurteilen. Der Preis war auch sehr angemessen.

Local Chambers of Commerce for G84 0NX. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!

Find Recycling Centres

Blackhill Recycling Centre

Luss Rd, Helensburgh G84 9EE, UK – 01546 605514

Recycling center. Not a lot more to say. Only thing they don't seem to take is soil. As another reviewer mentioned, last entry is 15 mins before closing time but it does clearly state this on the website and sign on the gate

Helpful staff during my visit. Even helped me with a heavy bag of garden waste

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Cove

Cattle & Creel

74 W Clyde St, Helensburgh G84 8AX, UK – 01436 269278

Fantastic food and friendliest staff. The seafood platter is a must! Really appreciated the fact that the catch is sourced locally and seasonally. We were fortunate to have tasted two lobsters on the week that it came back on the menus - everything cooked beautifully. Definitely recommend this place.

A really great experience. Very friendly helpful staff, well decorated and bright inside. Food was honestly amazing. Had the Sunday roast with sirloin steak and was one of the best meals I can ever remember having. Highly recommended.

The Ginger-Breadman

62-64 E Clyde St, Helensburgh G84 7PG, UK – 01436 268726

Lovely little cafe and bakery. Had a couple of good cakes and coffee. Would recommend a visit.

Small, independent bakery/coffee shop with a good range of tasty cakes and snacks. Enjoyed popping in on a rainy afternoon.

Masala Twist

29 James St, Helensburgh G84 8AS, UK – 01436 676665

Very excellent food and really friendly service. Huge naan bread and generous portions of everything, and a crazily delicious fresh chilli sauce provided when I asked for some more heat.

Excellent Indian Restaurant in Helensburgh which we have visited many times. Part of a group of restaurants in and around Glasgow with same name and expertise in Indian Cuisine.
