C6 Lochgoilhead - Carrick Castle
This article is about the Class III road numbered C6 maintained by Argyll and Bute Council.
For other roads numbered C6, see C6

The C6 runs down the western shore of Loch Goil, from the pretty lochside village of Lochgoilhead to Carrick Castle. It forks off the B839 at the entrance to the village, and runs around the head of the loch, past the holiday park, before crossing the Lettermay Burn. After a brief run along the shore, the road climbs inland a little, passing occasional houses, before dropping back to the lochside as it enters the village of Carrick Castle. It is not clear where exactly the C6 comes to an end, the road passing the castle itself which stands on the shore, opposite a car park at the hotel. Signs warn that the onward route is a no through road with no turning space, and the road does indeed deteriorate in quality steadily as it winds along the shore, before eventually becoming a private drive, doglegging inland a little to reach the final houses. From here, the Cowal Way footpath continues south into the forest to Ardentinny.
