Travel

We strongly encourage both visitors and residents to use public transport to travel to, and around, the National Park. We are working with a wide range of partners to develop and promote local public transport services.
 
Good transport links, such as buses that carry bikes and good connections between trains and buses, play an important role in widening peoples' travel choice. So hop on a bus, train, coach or ferry and enjoy the outstanding beauty of Scotland's first National Park.

Getting here is easy on public transport from Glasgow, Argyll and central Scotland. Train, ferry, bus and coach services offer you great value for money and allow you to concentrate on the views, rather than the car in front. They also help to keep the Park special by reducing the number of cars on the roads.
