Lochgoilhead Park - facilities nearby?

Hi,

Family are staying in Lochgoilhead at the park there, and my question is a bit functional at this stage, but will be of great help to be answered. Where is/ how far is the nearest decent-sized supermarket and petrol station in the Lochgoilhead area?

Thanks in anticipation,

Edinburgh, Scotland

You should be aware that the two roads that lead into Lochgoilhead are both narrow, twisty, real single track roads, you have Hell's Glen (very narrow, fun for some but perhaps not for all!) and Glen Mhor (which is also not easy). Lochgoilhead is a dead-end.

There is a mini-market in Lochgoilhead (can't remember about petrol) but the nearest 'decent-sized' supermarket is a long way. Perhaps even Glasgow. There is one in Lochgilphead but that's not much use to you. Not sure about Inveraray. Unless someone knows better I suggest you stock up before you arrive.

Beautiful spot.

Nearest petrol is over the Rest and into Arrochar.

Nearest supermarkets are either Dunoon or Dumbarton. (In other words - not really near at all).

Or Balloch, still a long way off but five miles closer than Dumbarton.

The Spar in Inveraray is good for necessities and there is a nice butcher in the town too. You can get petrol in Inveraray and the shop at the pumps is pretty well stocked.

There is a shop on site but I suspect it will be expensive so as others have said - stock up before you arrive.
