Getting here

Tighnabruaich is just two hours from Glasgow. In no time at all, you’ll be settled in and enjoying the peace, tranquillity and stunning views. What’s more, the journey here takes you through some of the most breath-taking scenery in the Scottish Highlands and is part of the pleasure of your trip.

Getting here by road (from Glasgow)
This fabulous drive takes you up the side of Loch Lomond, through the Arrochar Alps and over the world-famous Rest and Be Thankful. The final stretch winds along the coast with the Kyles of Bute stretching out ahead. There are some wonderful viewpoints dotted along this road. Take the A82 along Loch Lomond to Tarbet, then the A83 towards Inveraray and Campbeltown. At Cairndow, turn left on to the A815, then at Strachur turn right on to the A886, signposted Glendaruel and Colintraive. Just after Glendaruel turn right onto the A8003 towards Tighnabrauich. Allt Beag is on the right just after the entrance to the Kyles Medical Centre. If you reach The Royal Hotel, you’ve gone too far.

Getting here by road and ferry
Another option is to get the ferry from Gourock to Dunoon and enjoy a drive through remote, mountainous country. The writer Iain Banks reckons it’s one of best wee roads in Scotland. You then pick up the same coastal road as above. Take the A8 to Gourock, then Western Ferries from McInroy’s Point to Hunter’s Quay near Dunoon. Turn right on to A815, then shortly after leaving the 40mph area, turn left on B836, a winding single track road with passing places. After about 17 miles, turn right on A886, then left on A8003 towards Tighnabruaich.

Getting here by boat
The Kyles offer shelter in all conditions and there is a good anchorage just a short walk from the house. There are moorings available to Royal An Lochan Hotel patrons which is located just 50 meters from Allt Beag. Other yachting facilities include moorings at Kames Hotel, Tighnabruaich Hotel and Tighnabruaich Boat Yard. The recently built state-of-the-art Portavdie Marina is located nearby.
