By Road: Directions from the Inverness
Take the A835 to Ullapool and then onto Ledmore Junction. Turn left on to the A837 to Lochinver, which is approximately 19 miles. On approach to the village take a right turn over the stone bridge which is signposted to Baddidarrach. After the cattle grid take a left turn onto the single track road and after two right hand bends, Caisteal Liath Chalets and car park are located on the right hand side. This is the most direct route to reach Lochinver, but many Sat. Nav. Systems suggest that you take alternative routes!
By Bus or Coach
There are direct trains from London to Inverness and there is a sleeper service available. From Inverness you will then need to take one of the bus services mentioned above to continue your journey.
