I also recall this man and the hut, which was a green covered tent like structure. It was sited beside the old road just prior to the farmhouse before you ascend to the rest. (between Dunoon road end, and the farmhouse) Our family trips from Dunoon to Glasgow were generally via this road, as this was the main route to Glasgow prior to the Western Ferries service starting.

Even with a positive yes, a vehicular service is viable, are the government going to build the ships for a company to use them, in competition with a well established profitable competition? Is there a company willing to start a town to town service? Does anyone know?

- Does the new ticketing arrangement for Gourock-Dunoon ferries make Argyll Ferries redundant?
Peter, I suppose it is really the time factor. Going directly by ferry from Dunoon to Gourock , should only take 20 minutes. Going via bus could add on another 20 minutes at least, in getting to and from Western, and waiting on a ferry. Could be longer depending on ferry times, and how busy they are. So, going directly should always be quicker.
