    Road Directions

    From Inverness - Go over the Kessock Bridge. At the next roundabout take the second exit onto the A835 towards Ullapool. You pass through Contin and Garve. Shortly after leaving Garve turn Left onto the A832 for Gairloch. At Achnasheen continue straight on at the roundabout. In the middle of Kinlochewe turn Left onto the A896. This takes you on a single track road to Torridon and then on to Shieldaig. On reaching Shieldaig it is easiest to continue on the upper road. As you come down the hill you will see a very sharp right turning heading back into the village. Take this and we are the second house on your Right.

    From Fort William - Take the A82 (sign-posted Inverness) to Invergarry. Here turn Left onto the A87 towards Kyle of Lochalsh. Shortly after passing Eilean Donan Castle turn right onto the A890 to Lochcarron - this road is single track in places so drive with care. After crossing the railway line at Strathcarron you come to a T junction. Turn Left onto the A896. This takes you through Lochcarron village. Continue on this road to Shieldaig - again single track in places. As you approach Shieldaig you go over a cattle grid and the road forks - take the Left fork along the coast and we are the second house on your right This route takes you through dramatic Highland scenery but can be quite slow if the roads are busy.
