Portincaple is a hamlet some 30 miles west of the City of Glasgow, along the north shores of the River Clyde, and 10 miles west of Helensburgh. If travelling by road from the south go through Glasgow on the M8, pass Glasgow Airport and continue along the M8 and turn off for Erskine Bridge, cross the River Clyde at the Erskine bridge and follow signs for A82 Crianlarich, turn off A82 at Loch Lomond golf club with sign for A817 Garelochhead, at the end of the A817 turn right at roundabout with signs for A814 Arrochar, turn right at next roundabout with signs for A814 Arrochar, pass under railway bridge and Portincaple is on the left, down the hill. You could also take the A814 and go through Dumbarton, Cardross, Helensburgh, Rhu and Garelochhead. This is a slightly shorter route but slow traffic through the towns. Portincaple is only 1 hours drive from the centre of the City of Glasgow and 50 minutes from Glasgow International Airport. Although this area is not very well served by public transport Garelochhead railway station which is on the famous and picturesque West Highland Railway Line, is only 2.5 miles away and has 2 trains each way every day, and Helensburgh Central Railway Station which is 10 miles away has trains to and from Glasgow every 1/2 hour.
