We may not think of piers as especially exciting architectural structures, but some of them gain legendary status – and Dunoon Pier in south-west Scotland is one of them. This iconic Victorian pier is a popular local landmark on the Cowal Peninsula, where the Clyde begins to open up and flow into the sea. The entrance building is particularly special, with its striking red-tiled roof and delicate timber-work.
The first pier was built on the Clyde here in 1835, though the two-berth structure we know today dates back to 1895, in the heyday of Victorian seaside resorts. Dunoon was once a popular destination for holidaymakers from Glasgow, who would come down the Clyde on hefty paddle steamers. To this day, the pier is still visited by the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world, PS Waverley.
This design shows PS Waverley chuntering past the pier, clouds of steam drifting up behind it. People stand and wave at the steamer as gulls flit about overhead – a beautiful scene to enjoy as you dry the dishes.
