Helensburgh to Garelochhead

The second stage of the Three Lochs Way links Helensburgh at the entrance to Gare Loch with Garelochhead at its northern end. The stage as described ends on a minor road which can be taken down into Garelochead (5km) which has a rail station. There is also a rougher, shorter alternative - see final paragraph.


Very boggy on the initial woodland section, then good tracks, a section of grassy field path and minor roads.

Public Transport
