By car
Take the M74 from the south* and M8 from the east. Follow signs for Glasgow M8 and Greenock M8 and then take the A8 through Port Glasgow, Greenock to Gourock.

Take the Western Ferry Service at McInroys Point, just two miles south of Gourock.

TIP:There is no ticket office at Macinroy Point. You can buy the tickets on board but they are much more expensive. Best thing to do is to purchase them from their website or stop at the KeyStore Paul's Food & Wine Convenience Store in Gourock (94 Shore St, PA19 1RB) or Co-Op Supermarket.

On arrival in Dunoon (Hunter's Quay), turn left out of the ferry terminal to the centre of Dunoon and the main pier. Continue past the pier and the Rock Cafe, up the hill and take the first left onto Park Avenue. Follow ahead and turn right onto Victoria Parade. We are the third B&B on the right hand side.

* If you are travelling by car from the south, you can also take the land route - it takes you along Loch Lomond, over Rest and Be Thankful, and alongside Loch Eck. It's a very scenic drive and the roads are smooth. During busy season, there might be a little bit of traffic or you might get stuck behind a lorry so do allow extra time!

Public transport

It will take you just over an hour to get to us from Glasgow. From Glasgow Central, take the Scot Rail train to Gourock that leaves roughly every half an hour and takes around 40 minutes. The trains connect to the Gourock – Dunoon ferry which is another half hour or so.

When you come out from the ferry terminal, walk towards the main road and take a left. Continue past the Rock Café and bear left onto the Promenade (Victoria Parade). Continue for a couple of minutes, we are in the next terrace past the Esplanade Hotel.

We have 3 parking spaces (6 when doubled up) at the front of our property, enough for 6 cars if everyone parks thoughtfully. These are on a first come, first served basis. If we run out of space, we will show you where you can park for free locally. Please be sure to park in front of The St Ives vs. another home/hotel to ensure they have enough room to park their own vehicles.
