Getting Here

The main entrance to Glenan Wood is via our car park at Lub na Faochaige between Calmac Portavadie ferry terminal/bus stop and the entrance to Portavadie Spa and Marina.

Dogs are welcome in the wood provided their responsible humans keep them under proper control. This means close at heal or on a lead, and picking up and removing excrement to reduce risks to children and adults from Toxocariasis. Further information for dog owners

​When visiting the wood please observe the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

If coming by car, please park safely; camper van owners please consider how your berthing affects other vehicle users. Budge up!

How to get here

By Car

From Tighnabruaich and Kames, drive west along the A8003. At Millhouse cross turn left and immediately right onto to stay on the A8003 to Portavadie ferry terminal and follow it until you reach the small right turn to our car park at Lub na Faochaige where you can park your car. If you reach the potravaide ferry terminal, you have gone about 200m too far!

The 478 bus terminates at Portavadie and is accessible from both Dunoon and visitors travelling via Bute at the Colintraive ferry terminal.

By Bike

We are on the Greenock to Tarbert National Cycle Route 75. You can secure your bike at the Portavadie Ferry terminal for exploring the wood on foot.

It is also common to see people walk along the A8003 but visitors should be aware that it is without a footpath, and there are occasional grass verges which you can walk along.
