and The Inn at Ardgour is easy to find, located at
the top of the slipway to the Corran Ferry on the shore of Loch Linnhe.
If coming from the south, take the A82 trunk road out of
Glasgow, through Dumbarton, up past Loch Lomond and through Glen Coe.
Coming out of Glen Coe, the A82 leads up towards Fort William. 2 miles
(3km) after the village of Onich, a short road to the left branches off
to the Corran Ferry slipway.
A four minute ferry crossing across Loch Linnhe takes you
to Ardgour and the Inn.
The fare for cars is £4.70. Foot passengers travel free.
If the ferry is not available, a 40 mile (65km) drive through
Fort William and along the shores of Loch Linnhe becomes necessary. The
ferry operates every half hour from around 7:30am and 9:00pm (8:00pm winter)
easy to reach from Central Scotland by car or public transport. Road routes
from the south converge on the A82 at Crianlarich then follow that road
through Glencoe and over the Ballachullish Bridge to Onich. From there
watch for the signs for the Corran car ferry to Ardnamurchan and Mull.
Coaches also follow this route from Edinburgh and Glasgow dropping passengers
at the ferry. Ask for "Corran Road End" when buying your ticket. There
is also a fabulous rail link - The West Highland Line. Catch the train
in Glasgow, sit back and enjoy one of the world's most scenic railways
and alight at Fort William. Take a local bus or taxi back to Corran Road
End and walk onto the ferry. This is one of the last public passenger
ferries to offer FREE transport to foot passengers. Ask at The Inn at
Ardgour about onward transport to Ardnamurchan and Mull.
