    From Inverness follow the A9 north for about 6 miles to the roundabout then take the A835 signed for Ullapool. After the village of Garve take the A 832 signed for Gairloch. Continue to Gairloch until you see the (McColls) convenience store on the left and a junction on the left sign posted for the B0821-Melvaig. Follow this road for about 8 miles until you reach the sign 'Aultgrishan'. The cottage is a further 1 mile on, situated on the hillside on the right. There is a cattlegrid at the end of the short steep drive. Take care crossing the cattle grid, which can be very slippery when wet, and the hill is quite steep, especially at the top.
