|Route outline (key)|
The C25 is a scenic route running along the northern shore of Loch Etive. It starts at a staggered crossroads on the A828 immediately to the north of the Connel Bridge and heads east, never far from the shore. The road curves north beyond Black Crofts, as the loch opens out from the narrow channel at Connel, before turning east once more at the junction with Moss Road. This is the U35 and leads back to the A828 at Benderloch.
Continuing east, the C25 is at its closest to the waters edge as it heads for the scattered village of Ardchattan, the distinctive church standing just above the road. A couple of scenic miles later, Ardchattan Priory is reached, with the house and gardens built amongst the ruins of a Medieval priory. Another mile further on, the C25 comes to an end at a TOTSO junction with the B845. The main route continues east along the shore to Bonawe.
