We understand that the Larach road C9 from Sligrachan Bus turning to Whistlefield is currently impassable due to freezing snow. Argyll & Bute Council gritters only operate to Sligrachan terminus. They do not grit past this point.
The new Ardentinny bus timetable comes into effect on 23 October, 2011. The main change for Ardentinny residents and visitors is that the Sunday bus service will now amalgamate with the Toward service and become the 489. The Sunday 489 service will terminate at Ardentinny Car Park and will run four return journeys from Dunoon at 09.30, 11.30, 14.30 and 16.30. One positive aspect of the change in Sunday services will be the ability for Ardentinny residents to now travel to Toward Lighthouse without the need to change buses!
