From Glasgow, take M8 West/A804 towards M77/SECC/A804/Charing Cross. Keep right at the fork to stay on M8, which you follow until you can change onto M898 towards Erskine/Bishopton. Take exit Great Western Road/A82 towards Crianlarich. Now you can either follow A82 all along the west bank of the lake, or you turn towards Balloch, to the southernmost point of the lake. For this option, take the third exit (A811) at the fourth roundabout, and then the first exit at the next one, towards Old Luss Road. Then you turn right into Balloch Road, and go left before the bridge, onto Pier Road, which leads you straight to the lake.
