Plain Sailing


By Air

Glasgow Airport lies the closest to Portavadie, but don’t expect an easy travel after you land. Car, train and coach travel are available. (see below)

By Train

Train travel will take you from Glasgow to the nearby ferry terminal at Greeock. From there, a ferry across the water and a coach to Portavadie will set you back four hours in total.

By Bus

Coaches are available from Glasgow and are generally cheaper than the train, although even slower. In total, it’s around 5 hours for the 80 mile drive.

By Car

It’s an 80 mile drive around the headland to Portavadie from Glasgow via the A82 and the B8000, taking a total of two hours. Alternatively the drive to Greenock via the B836 and the ferry will cost extra, but will cut your travel distance by around 30 miles.
