Dunoon is easily reached from Glasgow and Central Scotland by driving west on the M8 and following the signs for Greenock and Gourock, or you can take the train or bus from Glasgow to Gourock. Upon reaching Gourock, you can take either the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry which operates from the Gourock Ferry Terminal (next to the train station) to Dunoon Pier, or you can take Western Ferries from Gourock’s McInroy’s Point to Hunter’s Quay. Neither ferry requires pre-booking. Alternatively, drive the longer, scenic route from Glasgow, crossing the Erskine Bridge and then heading for the A82 which passes Loch Lomondside, then the A83 past the Rest and Be Thankful, followed by the A815 along the shores of Loch Eck, which leads to Dunoon.
Dunoon is also a one hour journey from Glasgow Airport, and 52 miles from Prestwick Airport.
Dunoon is the seaboard gateway to Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, the first National Park in Scotland.
