    Road Directions

    If you're arriving by car from the north on the A85, you'll arrive in town coming down a winding hill.  Once you get to the roundabout, turn left onto Dunollie Road.  We're up the end of the row of guesthouses on the left.  We're opposite Farmfoods; you'll see our blue-and-yellow sign that says Backpackers Plus.
    If you're arriving by car from the south on the A816, follow the road through town, all the way along the waterfront with the ocean on your left.  You'll get to a roundabout with the Corran Halls straight ahead and a green on the right in front of some guest houses.  Turn right at this roundabout; as if you're leaving town again headed for Fort William.  Then turn right at the second roundabout which is only about 50 yards on.  You're on Dunollie Road now, and we're up the end on the left, opposite Farmfoods.  You'll see our blue-and-yellow sign that says Backpackers Plus.

    Public Transport Directions

    If you are arriving on public transport, we are about a 10-15 minute walk (depending on how heavy your luggage is!) from the arrival point for the bus, train or ferry.  You could catch a taxi for approx £3-4 if your bags are really heavy.  If you're walking, go straight up the main street of town, with the ocean on your left.  Walk up the same side of the road as New Look clothing, Boots the chemist, and SpecSavers optical store.  Once you go past the Phoenix Cinema, you're nearly there.  As you're walking past the Taj Mahal Indian restaurant, look up the left side of the road forking in front of you; you'll see our blue-and-yellow sign that says Backpackers Plus.
