How to find The Gardeners Cottages.
Arden is 20 miles North West of Glasgow on the A82.
From Glasgow and the South, follow the signs for M8, Airport and Erskine Bridge. Exit the M8 motorway at Junction 30 (M898) to cross the Erskine Bridge, then north on the A82 Crianlarich road to Loch Lomond.
At the Balloch roundabout, which is at the southern end of the Loch, the road becomes a single-carriage way. Follow the A82 for just over two miles past Cameron House and Duck Bay Marina which will be on your right.
At the next roundabout turn right off the main road. Turn right immediately at the small 'T' junction and continue for a short distance (100 metres) to the gate lodge and turn left before the lodge. After a further 100 metres turn left again and follow the track to its end in to the grounds of the cottages.
The large private grounds allow plenty of space for the parking of cars and boats.

"An excellent breakaway from the stresses and strains of modern city working life. The location is ideal, the setting beautiful, and Andy and Avril are brilliant. The small touches found on arrival are the best welcome anyone can ever have!" Jody and Jose Quercus.
