Ard Darach Lodge is situated 6 miles north of Dunoon on the A815 on a site known collectively as Lamont Lodges, midway between the Cothouse Services and Benmore Botanic Garden.
It is immediately adjacent to the Forestry Commission’s Puck’s Glen walks.
 
From Glasgow there is a choice of two routes:
Either:
Take the A82 (signed for Crianlarich) north up the west shore of Loch Lomond to Tarbet, then follow the A83 (signed for Inveraray) west through Arrochar, over the Rest And Be Thankful pass, then turn left on to the A815 (signed for Dunoon) and follow it down the shore of Loch Fyne, through Strachur and down Loch Eck. Beyond Loch Eck you shall pass the entrance to Benmore Botanic Garden on your right, one mile beyond this along a long straight followed by two bends the entrance to Lamont Lodges is on your left, if you get to Puck’s Glen carpark then you have missed the entrance. Dependant on weather and traffic this should be a drive time of around 1hr 40mins.
 Or:
From Glasgow take the M8 west then the A8 and A770 through Port Glasgow, Greenock and Gourock. In Gourock drive past the signs for Caledonian MacBrayne ferries, past all of the shops and continue along the shore of the Firth of Clyde to the Western Ferries terminal where there is a frequent service leaving every 20-30 mins at peak times and hourly later in the day. From the Kingston Bridge in Glasgow to Western Ferries shall take around 1 hour depending on traffic.
The ferry takes you in to Hunter’s Quay. On leaving the terminal turn right and follow the shore of the Holy Loch until you reach a T-junction, turn right on to the A815 (signed for Glasgow) and drive out through Sandbank. When you reach the Cot House petrol station continue on for around 0.7 of a mile past the entrance to Puck’s Glen, directly after this on the right is the entrance to Lamont Lodges.
On entering the site turn left and follow the road to the end, the last lodge is Ard Darach (No.7).
