The Location and How to Get to Beech Cottage, St Catherines, Cairndow, PA25 8AZ

The North of Cowal is defined by Loch Fyne on the west and Loch Long on the east of Cowal.

It is quite distinctively rugged with a feeling of great remoteness, yet easily accessed being just over an hour from Glasgow via the scenic drive along the shores of Loch Lomond and up over the Rest-and-be-Thankful by the Arrochar Alps.

The cottage is well placed for enjoying a rural, lochside holiday, at the same time as being a relaxing and comfortable base from which to tour the scenic Cowal Peninsula, or further afield to Inveraray, Oban and Glencoe

Directions: Coming from England and the south the M6 motorway becomes the M74 motorway just after the Scottish border. Continue on the M74.

As you approach Glasgow, follow signs for the M8 motorway. The M8 motorway passes through the centre of Glasgow.

Please note there can be traffic congestion and holdups in this area depending on the time of day. Continue on the M8 motorway till you come to junction 30, Erskine Bridge. The Erskine Bridge is toll free. Stay on the left-hand lane on the bridge and take the off-slip road to the A82. Continue on the A82 along Loch Lomond side for twenty miles. At Tarbet leave the A82 and proceed on the A83. Continue along the A83 for ten miles until you come to the junction of the A815. Drive along the A815 for approx 4 miles and you will start to decend a hill.  Take the first right hand turn and follow the shore road for approx 1 mile.  If you miss the turning you will be in St Catherines.  

Beech Cottage is the second shore side single storey cottage with large parking area.


PLEASE NOTE: Sat Navs are not reliable in this area for some reason, you are best to follow these directions rather than key in the post code.

ALSO BEFORE YOU SET OFF IT'S IMPORTANT THAT YOU CHECK THAT THE A83 IS OPEN

The Rest and Be Thankful on the A83 has been suffering land slips for a few years now and sometimes it is closed, however, there is usually an alternative convoy route at the bottom that takes you up the Old Military Road, however, sometimes they are both closed.Check here before you leave: https://www.bearscot.com/a83-r...
