    We're hoping to resume our 'Hug the Coast of Scotland' trip later this month but could do with a bit of Advice/Local Knowledge for this particular part.....

    We are resuming where we left off at Garelochhead and going up the A814 to Arrochar then the A83 to Ardgarten but here's the dilemma....

    We want to hug the coast as close as possible and Google maps shows there are minor roads south of Ardgarten within the peninsula formed by Loch Long and Loch Goil. Google Street view shows the road almost as far south as Coilessen down Loch Long but then probably forestry roads most of the way round the peninsula and back up Loch Goil to Lochgoilhead.
    We have a 7.2 metre MH; anyone any first hand knowledge of these roads within the peninsula?

    I seem to remember someone of Fun setting off earlier this year to do a coastal tour but can't find the thread on the search engine

    We go trough Ardgartan a couple of times a year and have pitched there before. From memory there are only forestry roads south of there. Our route is normally over the Rest and be Thankful and then down to Inverary. As far as I am aware it's not possible to follow the coast of Loch Long or Loch Goil. Best bet is the A815 through Strachur and on down to the Holy Loch.

    We've only been to Campbelltown once, not a lot there but worth a visit nonetheless.

    Enjoy your trip.

    If you are on the kintyre peninsula then for me the Gouldruns is well worth a visit, with the herd's of wild goats going down to the sea. The Seals basking right next to the road, and the gannets diving
    We loved that peninsula even Cambletown after visiting the little museum and having the history bought to life.
