Directions to Portavadie: Leave the main road at Glendaruel and follow signs for Tighnabruaich. Be careful as the road you now take is single track in places with limited visibility! When you reach the T-junction in Tighnabruaich, turn right and head for Kames. After about a mile and a half you will see signs for the 'Kintyre Ferry' - follow these and they will lead you to the ferry terminal at Portavadie.
