    Secure wireless Internet/wi-fi is available in all bedrooms.  We have private off road parking if you have a car and we have a private garage if if you need to lock up your bikes safely for the night.  Our location also has excellent public transport: there is a bus stop on our doorstep and a train station with it's frequent services to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Balloch/Loch Lomond, only a few minutes walk away.

    Please take a look at our website positano.org.uk for new photos and information on our recently renovated rooms. Only a 15 minute drive from Glasgow International Airport (60 minutes from Prestwick, 70 minutes from Edinburgh Airports), and less than 10 minutes from Loch Lomond,  Dumbarton is the perfect stop over town to spend some days in before going further north to (e.g.) the Highlands or Inverness/Loch Ness on your vacation. Or why not spend your entire vacation with us? We're an ideal base for touring all around this area of Scotland. We're only a short drive from from Luss, Balloch and Helensburgh; ideal for day trips to places such as Stirling, Callandar, Dunoon, the Trossachs, Inveraray, Aberfoyle, Oban, Troon, Largs and Ayrshire. Even Edinburgh is only a 70 minute drive away. Glasgow City Centre, with it's wonderful museums, shops, restaurants and night life, is 25 minutes away. And of course Dumbarton Castle (which has the longest recorded history of any stronghold in Great Britain), is right on our doorstep - a 5 minute walk away from our property.

    Positano is a spacious, modern house that has been recently refurbished throughout to an exceptionally high standard. Located very centrally in the town of Dumbarton. Although on a road, our main entrance is at the back of the house, with a large garden and back yard. None of our rooms suffer from traffic noise. You really wouldn't know we're on a road at all - we have the best of both worlds: a convenient, easy to find location and beautiful, peaceful accommodation. We offer a friendly and helpful family service.

    Road Directions

    When you reach the B&B: Our parking and main entrance is off the road at the back and it's not always obvious how to get there (we don't use the front entrance at all). There are two signs with the B&B name just off the road and between those signs is an Insurance office called "Young": to the left of Young there is a path/lane - you need to drive/walk up that lane and the reception is the house at the end with the conservatory.

    Public Transport Directions

    Getting there by railway:- From Dumbarton East station turn to your right. We're a direct 5 minute walk from the station on Glasgow Road.

    Getting there by aeroplane:- From Glasgow Airport take the M8 motorway to Erskine Bridge, then follow the signs for Dumbarton. When you reach Dumbarton be sure to take the A814 (the side the river and castle is on to your left), rather than continue down the A82. We're about a mile into the town from there. You will go under a railway station (Dumbarton East) - we're just a minute down the road from there.
