Helensburgh Winter's Day View from Pier

Discover Helensburgh & Lomond,
the Gateway to Argyll

Remember to #ShopLocal – Helensburgh has lots of fabulous independent shops and eateries for you to enjoy this winter!

Only 45 minutes by train from Glasgow, and within easy reach of both the west coast and central belt of Scotland, Helensburgh is the ideal location for a winter day out. Browse in unique independent shops and galleries, dine in award-winning restaurants and cafés, then relax in a boutique hotel or B&B. Or get outdoors – you can enjoy a wander along our seafront promenade, or if you are feeling more adventurous, head out on the John Muir Way or Three Lochs Way!

There are lots of events on throughout the winter including concerts, lectures, film shows, and so much more – see our What’s On Calendar for all the latest events. You can also find out all about our town via the Discover Helensburgh App.
