If you are coming from Ireland by way of Stranraer or Troon, or by Prestwick airport then an ideal entry point is by ferry from Gourock on the South Clyde coast to Dunoon. Alternatively from Glasgow head for Loch Lomond and enter via the Helensburgh Road, Arrochar or Tyndrum to Dalmally or North to Bridge of Orchy.
