Travel Information

From 16 April, some Scottish Government restrictions have changed to allow travel across local authority boundary areas to meet small groups socially outdoors, for recreation or exercise. 

Before you travel use the Scottish Government postcode checker to check what applies to you.

If you are travelling – in line with restrictions – it is very important that you follow all our safety protocols, including maintaining strict physical distance.


BEAR Scotland, on behalf of Transport Scotland, are set to commence with the installation of waiting restrictions on the A83 Trunk Road at Arrochar. The works will involve application of double/single yellow roadmarkings including installation of supplementary waiting restriction signage between the junction of A814 and The Loch Long Hotel. The works are set to get underway on Tuesday 20 April and are expected to last for one day, with working hours being 0700 to 1900 hrs

Friday 26th March - Sunday 25th April

Following a review of the reduced timetable due to availability of staff and to ensure service resilience, we can confirm that a full winter timetable will be reinstated from 26 March until 25 April 2021. You can view the timetable here.
