By Road and Ferry

Take the M8/A8 westbound to Greenock then continuing as A770 through Greenock and Gourock.

The first ferry signs are those for the Calmac ferry www.calmac.co.uk which is less frequent than the Western – but useful if travelling on train/foot. We recommend that you continue a further two miles along the shore road until you reach the Western ferry terminal at McInroy’s point. www.westernferries.co.uk (Advance tickets are also better value : a car + driver can take the 20 minute Western Ferry crossing from Gourock to Hunters Quay for less than £7 (2007/8 fares))

Turn right on exit from the ferry and follow the road until you pass the Holy Loch marina. Turn right at the T junction. Continue for 2 miles past open countryside and when you see the Cot service station, you are almost at the right-hand turn onto the A880 signposted for Strone & Blairmore. Continue along this road until you reach Blairmore pier and shops and the house is approx.100m further on the left.

By Road

Take the A82 through central Glasgow to Dumbarton, heading up the side of Loch Lomond to Tarbet. Take the A83 to Arrochar until the A815 turning on the left, signposted for Dunoon. At Strachur take the left fork down past Loch Eck. DO NOT take the advice of sat. navigation devices to go via Ardentinny UNLESS you want a scenic route with single passing places. Instead continue towards Dunoon past the Benmore Botanical Gardens then turn left on A880 as above.

By Rail

To Gourock – then walk to Calmac ferry.

By Bus

A bus service runs from the ferry terminals in Dunoon to Blairmore pier beside the house.
