Travel is somewhat easier than it was in 1953 when the journey could take many days. (See B&W picture) Then, there were no motorways, and one sometimes encountered an occasional herd of cows or flock of sheep!
Today, driving to the cottage on Loch Fyne is easy.
With the new road up Loch Lomond, the cottage is only an hour away from Glasgow.
Although most will drive up Loch Lomond, it is also possible to catch a car ferry from Gourock to Hunters Quay, Dunoon (£17.60). Then drive via Loch Eck to Strachur and on to St Catherine’s (25 miles from Dunoon).
The cottage is remote so we think that at least one person in your party should have a car, but for those joining friends already at Tighcladich, travel by train is an attractive option. From the South, the overnight sleeper from London departs at 2115 and arrives in Arrochar at 0706. A local taxi can then bring you to the cottage. Alternatively, most will travel to Glasgow Central where friends will pick them up. Car parking at the station is easy as parking is available in the Oswald Street carpark (G1 4PA) giving access directly onto the platforms.
The Scotrail sleeper website is useful for overnight info.
