Important Note when using Sat Nav / Tom Tom - Please note that this tends to take you to the nearest ferry port - which is no use if you will not arrive in time to catch the second ferry at the other end!! Please make sure you use a map if travelling by road, and use the A82 and A83 as noted below, crossing via the Erskine Bridge if on M8.
This will take approx. 3 hours from Glasgow with some of the most beautiful scenery en route. Take the A82 from Glasgow, past Loch Lomond and change onto the A83 at Tarbet. Follow the A83 past Inveraray, down Loch Fyne, through Lochgilphead and on to Tarbert, at the gateway to Kintyre. The A83 continues down the Atlantic Coast of Kintyre, to Campbeltown. Turn first left to Carradale and at a V junction take the right- hand, lower coastal road, marked with a 20mph sign. Craigard House Hotel is 500 metres along Low Askomil where you see the white sign.

Three ferry routes lead to this area.
Coming from Glasgow/Edinburgh, continue on the M8 to Greenock, then one option is to follow the A78 south to Ardrossan and take a ferry to Brodick on the Isle of Arran. Turn right and follow the A841 to Lochranza, where another ferry is available to Claonaig (summer only – see Caledonian MacBrayne website www.calmac.co.uk for details). From Claonaig you have the choice of the faster A83, in which case you follow signs for Tarbert and then turn left onto the A83 as mentioned above. Or alternatively, you could follow the B842 south via Carradale to Campbeltown. This route includes single track roads and is unsuitable if you are in a hurry! Please note that the ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick should be booked in advance.
Alternatively you could use either Caledonian MacBrayne Ferry from Gourock to Dunoon Town, or Western Ferries (www.westernferries.co.uk) from McInroy's Point, on the outskirts of Gourock, to Hunter's Quay, between Dunoon and Sandbank. For both ferries, follow A87 from Greenock in a westerly direction. In both cases, turn right and follow A815 north. In Sandbank turn left to Tighnabruiach. Follow the A8003 south to Portavadie, take the ferry (Calmac) over to Tarbert. Stay on the A83 along the coast until you reach Campbeltown. This is the main road and allows faster travel.
