Kintyre Map Image

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.

By Road
Journey Approx. 3 hours from Glasgow. Signage on M74 not very good, so see note below.

On approaching Glasgow, follow signs for M74 in right hand lanes (left lane M73 goes to Stirling) then ultimately M8. Follow M8 (in right hand lanes to avoid M77 turnoff); to airport and Paisley then, not long after Paisley, take exit for Erskine Bridge M898. (Sat Nav will want you to continue on M8 to take ferry, ignore this as distant second ferry does not run in darkness)

On North side of Erskine follow Crianlarich left. Take the A82 from Glasgow, past Dumbarton and 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 (do not follow sat nav!). On reaching Campbeltown, turn first left to Carradale B842 for approx one mile, and at a V junction (where road bears left uphill to Carradale) 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.

Once near Campbeltown, this map will direct you to the hotel click here to download.

Ferry Travel
Three ferry routes lead to this area.
If travelling at the weekend - Coming from Glasgow/Edinburgh, continue on the M8 to Greenock, then one option is to follow the A78 south to Ardrossan and catch a ferry directly to Campbeltown.

Ferries only run at certain times – so see Summer Timetable for 'Kintyre – Ardrossan –
Campbeltown'. See Caledonian MacBrayne website (CalMac) click here

Alternatively, from Ardrossan on any day, you could and take a ferry to Brodick on the Isle of Arran. On reaching Brodick, turn right and follow the A841 to Lochranza, where another ferry is available to Claonaig (summer only – see CalMac website 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 ( 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.
