Rhu village is situated two miles out of Helensburgh, on the Gareloch, on the route to the peninsula and the Naval bases – Faslane and Coulport. Its also on the route to Arrochar, Oban, Fort William and the Highlands of Scotland, a good stopping-off point on your journey. Its a very pretty village with a strong sailing tradition and even tales of smuggling in days of yore! Glenarn Gardens, which, although a private residence, are open to the public [a small donation is encouraged] and are spectacular in the spring.
Helensburgh is a lovely seaside town with plenty of restaurants and shops. There are buildings of architectural interest including Charles Rennie Macintosh’s Hill House (National Trust).

There are direct train connections to Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as Oban, Mallaig and Fort William.
Faslane Naval Base is about 3.5 miles away towards Garelochhead; there is a half-hourly bus service, and we are only a very short walk to the bus route. There is an excellent regular direct train service to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Oban and Fort William, and we’re 35 minutes by car from Glasgow Airport (GLA).
