Getting here

By Sea

The local volunteer pier association provide ten moorings and a pontoon for public use just beside The Oystercatcher; the perfect stop off while exploring Argyll by sea. 

There is no set charge for use of the moorings, but donations towards maintenance are welcome and can be left in the bar or donation box by the pontoon.

By Road

From Glasgow Via Ferry

Take the M8 west out of Glasgow, travel past Greenock on the A78 to Gourock and head for one of the two signposted ferries which have frequent and regular crossings to Dunoon. The Oystercatcher is about 23 miles from Dunoon. Travel north along the A815, turn left onto the B836 and then right onto the A886. Finally, follow the sign left to Otter Ferry. 

From Glasgow by road

From Glasgow follow the A82 passing Loch Lomond and follow the road which veers left at Arrochar and turns into the A83. Turn left onto the A815 to Strachur then take the A886 and B8000, (sign posted scenic route) to Tighnabruaich along the shore of Loch Fyne to Otter Ferry.
