Travel Travel

Visitors from the South should drive up the M6/M74/A74 to Glasgow. Those taking the M1/A1M up the East coast should cut across to the M6/M74. From Glasgow the next road is the A81 to Aberfoyle. Visitors from the East of Scotland should go first to Stirling, then follow the A84, A873 and A81 via Thornhill and Port of Menteith to Aberfoyle. Visitors from the North of Scotland should go first to Callander, then follow the A81 to Aberfoyle.

From Aberfoyle take the B829 to Inversnaid. (This road is a dead end for those who do not have an amphibious car!) Eight kilometres West of Aberfoyle is the spread out village of Kinlochard. Continue to the West end of the Loch and turn left at the phone box (next to the Wee Blether tearoom). After about half a kilometre the road becomes a Forestry Commission track. The club is a little further on the left.
