Finding the house
Head north on the A9 from Inverness and then take the A835 to Ullapool. From Ullapool take the A835 and A837 to Lochinver. Just before Lochinver turn right onto the B869, signposted Stoer and Drumbeg. After about a mile there is a small bridge. Do not turn left to Achmelvich here, but keep on the main road to the right. An Airidh is on the right less than a 1/4 mile after the bridge. If you go up a long, long hill you have missed the house!
If you are using a satnav, do not enter the postcode as this will probably take you to the wrong road. Use the latitude (58.174) and longitude (-5.263) instead.

The area is not well served by public transport – but that is one of its beauties! You will really feel like you have got away from it all with no traffic noise, pollution or hustle and bustle.
