Off to Argyll and the Isles? Stay among it all in a rural location at Glendaruel Caravan Park on the Cowal Peninsula.
Less than two hours from Glasgow and about 30 minutes' drive from Dunoon, Glendaruel is in a spiffing setting to use as a base around Argyll's coast and islands: beaches, forest walks, gardens and historic attractions are all within reach and the site is surrounded by hills and farmland, ancient woodland and a wealth of wildlife. (A trip to Loch Fyne Oyster Bar is highly recommended too.)
Glendaruel has cleanly-kept toilets and showers, a playground, a laundry area and a covered campers' shelter with seating. A few supplies are for sale, but please bring your bread and milk with you.

Leave Glasgow on the M8 and continue on the A8 to Greenock. At Greenock take the A770 and take the Western Ferries from McInroy’s Point (Gourock) to Hunter’s Quay (Dunoon). After leaving the ferry turn right and follow coastal route to a T-Junction. Turn right onto the A815, then take the left turn onto the B836. At the end of this road turn right at the T-Junction onto the A886. The park entrance is approximately 4 miles ahead on the left.
Note: If you are towing a caravan by the ferry route, the B836 road is not recommended. From the above, simply continue on the A815 to Strachur. Turn left onto the A886 and the park lies 13 miles south on the right.
Take the CalMac ferry from Tarbert to Portavadie. Leave the ferry and drive to the crossroads at Millhouse. Continue straight ahead following the B8000 to Tighnabruaich.
