About the neighbourhood
Kames is connected to Tighnabruaich part of 'Argyll's Secret Coast' and has a post office, church, police station and hotel. Tighnabruaich is a village on the Kyles of Bute in Argyll and Bute, just an hour and a half west of Glasgow, and is located along the east coast of Loch Fyne and stretching into the Kyles of Bute.

Tighnabruaich is popular for sailing and yachting and has its own sailing school. Shinty is the major sport, with the village being home to Kyles Athletic who have won more Camanachd Cups than any other team apart from Newtonmore and Kingussie.

There are a number of cycle routes posted for the area as well as signed walking routes. Tighnabruaich pier is used by the paddle steamer Waverley.
Car advised
How to get there
Tighnabruaich is under two hours' drive from Glasgow via the A82 / A83 Loch Lomond / 'Rest and be thankful' route. This takes you via A815 towards Strachur from the A83, just before Cairndow. At Strachur turn onto the A886, then the A8003 at Glendaruel.

Alternatively, use the ferry crossing at Gourock on the Clyde coast, giving direct access to Cowal at Dunoon, a 40 minute drive from Tighnabruaich. For this route stay on the M8 westbound to Greenock and continue on to the ferries at Gourock.

Whichever option you choose, the last 15 minutes are spectacular as you enter Tighnabruaich, it is worth stopping to enjoy the unparalled views of the Kyles of Bute before you descend into Tighnabruaich.
