Access by land

You will need a vehicle with high clearance, such as a 4X4 or SUV. Please do not attempt the journey in a standard vehicle as we are not able to tow you out and the AA might not be keen either! The track is normally in good condition but it can be slightly affected by the weather. Craig lies two miles up the track from Bonawe Quarry.

I normally allow 20 minutes drive from the quarry up to Craig.

Access by sea

The cottage is close to the loch side so access by water is possible, but only if you know what you are doing! Loch Etive is a sea loch, and there are a number of points along its shore from which you can launch a boat or kayak. Boat hire is available from TFC boats at Taynuilt.

Due to the nature of the loch and the high mountains around it, there can be squalls and unpredictable wind conditions. We strongly advise that you only bring a boat or other craft if you are experienced in similar conditions and locations.
