Getting Here

Argyll’s Secret Coast is just two hours from Glasgow and the journey takes you through fabulous scenery.

Travelling by road from Glasgow

Option 1 via the famous ‘Rest & be Thankful’ mountain pass:  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 then right on A8003 towards Tighnabruaich. 

Option 2 via the Dunoon ferry: 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 single track road with passing places. After about 17 miles, turn right on A886, then left on A8003 towards Tighnabruaich.

The last 15 minutes of your journey are spectacular as you climb over the mountains and enjoy the views of the Kyles of Bute (and the peninsula you will run around!) before you descend into Tighnabruaich.

Travelling by bus
Argyll and Bute Council offer detailed public transport guides which include local bus companies that operate across the region. West Coast Motors operates a bus service between Dunoon and Tighnabruaich, but check the times as there are only a few a day.


Registration details will be confirmed nearer the event.
