Dunoon is surprisingly easy to get to- an hour or so west of Glasgow. Basically, keep going until you see the hills over the sea, then get on a ferry.
Getting to Dunoon
By rail – to Gourock
By ferry – from Gourock, Bute or Kintyre
By bus – McGills, Citylink and local bus services
By road –
A82 from Glasgow heading north up Loch Lomondside or A82 from the north to Tarbet, Loch Lomond, then A83 over the Rest and Be Thankful, then A815 into the Cowal peninsula;
from Glasgow M8/A8 to Gourock and ferry to Dunoon.
If you use Western Ferries (who now run the only car ferry over to Cowal) from McInroys Point to Hunters Quay, you will arrive in Cowal around a couple of hundred yards from Sgath an Tighe.
From the ferry terminal, turn left along the seafront towards Dunoon, and after about a hundred meters, the yellow lines end. There are bus stops on both sides of the road. Sgath an Tighe is up a narrow lane on the right, signposted at the bottom ‘Mount Lebanon’.
The Googlestreet view is here. If you zoom in, you can look up the bottom of our lane (although you can’t see the house.)
Follow the signs up the lane, and then turn right onto our drive. There is car parking at the bottom of the hill, or drive up the hill to unload.
If in doubt- ring us from the ferry, and we will send out someone to wave you in. Or a smoke signal perhaps.
Here is the view back down to the sea-
