How to Get to the Castle: |
By Car: From Glasgow it is about 3 hours to Campbeltown. The most direct route is via the Erskine bridge then taking the A82 along Loch Lomond to Tarbet; then the A83 via Inverary and Lochgilphead. The drive from Loch Lomond onwards takes in some spectacular mountain and coastal views, passing various lochs including Loch Fyne (well worth a stop at the Loch Fyne shop and restaurant for local produce) and finishing the journey along the stunning Atlantic coastline.
By Car and Ferry: From Ardrossan, Ayrshire, you can take the ferry to Brodick, Isle of Arran (50 minutes). Then leave from Lochranza on the other side of Arran by ferry to Claonaig in North Kintyre (30 minutes, and not bookable in advance). The ferry from Ardrossan should be booked in advance but it is worth noting that the Claonaig ferry can be rather weather dependent.
