Glendaruel

Glendaruel is a glen in the Cowal Peninsula in Argyll, Scotland.The main settlement in Glendaruel (Gaelic: Gleann Dà Ruadhail) is the Clachan of Glendaruel.FeaturesThe present Kilmodan Church was built in the Clachan of Glendaruel in 1783. The Clachan of Glendaruel is the current location of Kilmodan Primary School, and the ground of Col-Glen Shinty Club.The ruined Dunans Castle is also located in Glendaruel, while Glendaruel Wood and Crags and the Ruel Estuary are both included in the List of Sites of Special Scientific Interest in Mid Argyll and Cowal.As the nearest Hospital is some miles away in Dunoon a disused phone box in the village was converted to house a defibrillator. Just weeks before the instillation a tourist in Glendaruel had died from a heart attack.DeclineThe community is home to around 188 people as of 2008 and has been subject to a general decline in the late 20th century continuing into the early 21st century. The closure of the Glendaruel Hotel, a 17th-century coaching inn housing the only local pub, was in particular described as "a body blow." The hotel closed not long after a widely publicized legal case was won by three Polish former employees who had been described as "Polish Slaves" by the hotel proprietors. Over the past two decades a number of facilities within the community have been lost, notable examples include the post office, general store and tearoom with even Kilmodan Church becoming part-time, holding services only 2 Sundays in a month.
