taxis & buses lochgilphead area

Hi we're coming to the area for a week soon and don't want to have to rely on the car all the time (like if we fancy going to the pub!). Could anyone advise whether there's a regular bus service or taxis so we can have a night off the driving together? Thanks.

Taxis in Lochgilphead are not that readily available particularly late at night. There is no local bus service after about 6pm.

It depends very much where you are staying and where you want to go but during the week don't expect to get a taxi after 10.30pm; at weekends they will work til Midnight - 1am. The best idea by far is to order a taxi from your hotel /cottage to where ever you want to go and arrange with the driver to collect you again at a specific time - he will definitlely come back for you. There are a couple of operators in the area but I've always found Glen Taxis on 07850 645671 reliable if a little reluctant to work late!

As for places to go, if you are looking for an old fashioned pub try the Comm on the front street. The other pubs - The Vic, The Argyll and the Stag are not really tailoring themselves for the tourist market ( definitely not in the case of the Stag!!). You could try the Slainthe Bar in Ardrishaig which has a bit more of a party atmosphere or if it's a quieter, nicer place you're looking for, then go to The Cairnbaan Hotel which also does excellent bar food. On the subject of food there is also Pinto's, an award winning Vegeterian restaurant in the centre of Lochgilphead.

It's a great area - enjoy!
