From Glasgow take the M80 to Stirling and then the M9 and A9 to Perth before following the A9 North to Inverness.
From Inverness take the A9 across the Kessock bridge to Tore following the signposts for Ullapool. After Tore follow the A835 until Garve, just after Garve take a left turn onto the A832 signposted for Achnasheen. At Achnasheen take a left at the roundabout onto the A890 signposted Lochcarron and follow the signs for Lochcarron (the road changes to the A896).
The cottage benefits from a private parking place directly outside the house. There is access to the Lonbain beach (shingle) and adjacent coastal walks. All around are the ruins of a bygone age including the ruins of the Lonbain street which was featured in the film about St Kilda "Ill Fares The Land". Also nearby is the old thatched croft "Duncans House" one of the last cottages of its type in the area and in use until quite recently.
