Gateway to Argyll

Gateway to Argyll Logo

Helensburgh and Lomond is the Gateway to Argyll, with great road and rail connections to the rest of Scotland, as well as walking, cycling, kayaking and sailing access points.

We are creating a Gateway to Argyll Visitor Map for the area to highlight all the great activities and businesses available, and we are also offering advertising within our Visitor Information Centre in Helensburgh. The visitor map will be beautifully illustrated by a Scottish artist – the map to the right just gives an indication of the area covered.

The Visitor Map is an excellent opportunity to promote your business to a wider reach of tourists. The printed map will be distributed to a broad range of relevant venues across Scotland, as well as being available locally. 25,000 copies will be produced and distributed. These are free, single use leaflets and therefore highly likely to be collected by tourists. The double-sided A2 map will fold down to A5, and will feature an area map of Helensburgh and Lomond and surrounding area, including tourist landmarks.

As well as the printed Map, advertising businesses will also be listed on our fully searchable digital map at the webpage and will be featured on our Gateway to Argyll social channels. You can sign up at any point during the year to the online map for a 12 month period.

The Destination Helensburgh Visitor Information Centre (VIC) is at 28 Sinclair Street, Helensburgh, opposite Tesco. It is not funded by Visit Scotland, but is an authorised iKnow Centre. Research commissioned by Visit Scotland confirmed that two thirds of visitors to an iKnow Centre said it had a positive impact on their visit to the area, and increased their spend levels on visitor attractions, accommodation, food and drink and shopping as a result. Over 70% of visitors pick up leaflets which means that it is an excellent opportunity to reach a receptive audience.
