Follow the traditional road route into Argyll & the Isles along the A82 as far as Dumbarton, Balloch and Loch Lomond.
Travellers can diverge from the A82 at Dumbarton to travel along the edge of the Clyde on the A814 to Cardross and Helensburgh and on to Garelochhead and Arrochar – look out for the route markers of the Clyde Sea Lochs Trail which starts in Dumbarton, a 65 mile road route which also takes in the beautiful Rosneath Peninsula.
Alternatively, continue up the A82 on Loch Lomondside. Helensburgh is only around 10 minutes from Loch Lomond on the A818, or there is the A817 connecting to Garelochhead, which is a stunning drive in either direction offering panoramic views to the east and west.
You can also access Helensburgh by bus, train (including the Highland Explorer on the West Highland Line), cycle routes, or walk along the John Muir Way or Three Lochs Way
