How to get there
Craobh Haven is south of the well-known town of Oban, about half way between Oban and Lochgilphead. It is just over two hours drive from Glasgow via the A82 and A83, about 17 miles north of Lochgilphead on the A816. For SatNav users, the postcode is PA31 8UA. We send detailed directions to the cottage on confirmation of booking. The nearest railway station is in Oban, about 20 miles north, but unfortunately trains from Glasgow are fairly infrequent. The bus from Glasgow stops in Lochgilphead before turning south to Campbeltown. A separate service leaves Lochgilphead in the morning calling in to Craobh Haven on its way to Oban and returning in the afternoon.
