Travelling by Car

If you are travelling by car, please see maps of the local area and the written directions below.

From Glasgow Airport

Follow M8 towards Glasgow.

Take exit to Clyde tunnel, and continue straight ahead on leaving tunnel, through 3 sets of traffic lights until you come to Anniesland Cross (major 5-way intersection). Continue straight across following signs for Aberfoyle, Bearsden and Milngavie.

Keep on this road for about 1 mile (1.75km), passing over the canal and under the railway bridge, curving to the left through double set of traffic lights. The entrance to Garscube Estate is on the right at the next set of traffic lights.

From South on M8

Drive West on M8 and exit left at junction #17 (A82, Dumbarton), turn right over the M8, following signs to Dumbarton.

This takes you on to Great Western Road which you should follow for about 2.5 miles (4km), passing the Botanic Gardens on the right (traffic lights; intersection with Byres Road and Queen Margaret Drive) after 1 mile (1.5km), and becoming dual carriageway after about 2 miles (3km).

After about half a mile (1km), the dual carriageway passes under a railway bridge; bear right at the next major junction (200 metres) to Bearsden (signed to Aberfoyle, Bearsden and Milngavie).

Keep on this road for about 1 mile (1.75km), passing over the canal and under the railway bridge, curving to the left through double set of traffic lights. The entrance to Garscube Estate is on the right at the next set of traffic lights.

On entering the Estate there is a security building and barriers controlling vehicle entry. Visitors should stop here and details (name, car registration, etc) will be checked. You may then proceed through the barrier, turn left and follow the road round to the right to the car park for the CR-UK Beatson Institute (the Reception is on the left as you drive in). If you can not find a space to park at the front of the building, there are additional spaces at the back.
