If you use GPS with our postcode you will be taken to 'The Briars' which is about half a mile south of the cottage. Follow the directions below.

We are at 56o02.74' N: 04o48.47' W.

From the SOUTH, stay on the M74 and pass through the south of Glasgow to join the M8. You will then pass Glasgow Airport and then take the M898 which is signed Erskine Bridge and also Loch Lomond. Coming off the bridge, take the A82 signed Crianlarich. After a couple of miles, you come to a roundabout. Carry on and as you approach Dumbarton, take a left fork along the A814 signed for Helensburgh. Stay on the A814 - it passes the cottage. You will go through Dumbarton, Cardross, Helensburgh and Rhu. Take the next turning left about a mile after the signs for Shandon and the Outdoor Centre and immediately turn left again to drive along the shore. (You will have turned a fully 180°). Inverallt and Shandonbank Cottage are at the end of the road. They are the only properties on the road. If you see the fence surrounding the naval base, you have gone too far.

We are about 4.5 miles beyond the traffic lights in Helensburgh. It will take you about an hour to reach us from the junction of the M74 and the M8. The M8 is congested during peak hours (as are alternative routes through Glasgow).

From the NORTH or EAST take the M8 through the north of Glasgow, pass the airport and continue as above.

If you are coming from the WEST and are south of the Clyde pick up the M8 and then take the M898 over the Erskine Bridge and follow the route given above.

From the NORTH-WEST, get onto the A814 and turn right at the end of the fence at the south perimeter of the navy base. Immediately turn left to Inverallt at the end of the road (as above).
