Location and Routes to Ardgour

 

Location

Adgour 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)

Routes to Ardgour

Ardgour is 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.

From Nether Lochaber, the departure point on the A82, sailings start at 07.00 and continue at approximately half-hourly intervals until 21.00 (20.00 in the winter). Return sailings from Ardgour start at 07.20 and continue at the same intervals until 20.50 (19.50 winter).

Crossing Time - 4 minutes

Cost - Foot and vehicle passengers and cycles travel free. Cars cost 4.70 each way with supplements for trailers. If you plan to use the ferry more than seven times in a year then a book of 30 tickets is a good buy. Use all of the tickets and your crossing price is reduced to just over 1.20.

Take the easy route from Mull

The shortest route from The Isle of Mull to the mainland is via CalMac's Fishnish to Lochaline ferry. It crosses the sound of Mull in just fifteen minutes (so it costs much less than the Oban/Craigure route and Fishnish is closer to Tobermory than Craigure.

Over the sea from Skye

Since the building of the Skye Bridge(toll) the romance of travelling "over the sea to Skye" has disappeared from the main acces to the island. You can still share the Bonnie Prince's experience when he fled the redcoats in the company of Flora MacDonald by usinhg CalMac's Armadale Mallaig ferry. There are then two routes available to Ardgour. Turn left at Lachailort and follow the coast to enjoy fabulous views of the small isles or turn left just after Glenfinnan and discover the best view of Ben Nevis on your way round Loch Eil and Loch Linnhe to Ardgour.
