There are good public transport options from Glasgow. At the time of writing trains from Queen Street station (low level) for
Helensburgh leave every half-hour from early till late. There are service buses from Helensburgh's Colquhoun Square (destination
Garelochhead or Coulport) which stop at Faslane Peace Camp or Faslane north gate. There is also a train service from Queen Street (main level: destination Mallaig/Oban) which stops at Garelochhead (about a mile walk from Faslane north gate). Check the current situation with Traveline Scotland (http://www.travelinescotland.com/). There are also ferries from Cowal and Inverclyde to Helensburgh and Kilcreggan.
It is more likely, however that groups will organise their own transport, especially if they want to use a minibus or a coach as a shelter, break or refreshment point. Parking then becomes an issue. The main parking points will be indicated on the map but these may change or be affected by police or council decisions in response to blockading. Make sure you check the current situation in contact with the blockading group who will arrive the day before you, or by contacting the F365 Information (a number will be advertised nearer the time or email email@example.com). You will also need to check the latest developments in regard to what the police and council will allow in terms of passengers alighting on the A814 which passes the base.
