How to find us
West Coast Scottish Highlands
Lochcarron lies on the A896 about 65 miles due west of Inverness, and as you look at the UK map, Lochcarron is on the mainland opposite the Isle of Skye.
By car Lochcarron is 4 to 5 hours drive from Edinburgh or Glasgow.
The fast route is up the A9 through Athol and the Cairngorm Mountains to Inverness then across country on the A835 and A832 through to Achnasheen with the final 23 miles on the A890 clearly signed.
The scenic route, which may be only a little slower, follows the west coast on the A82 through Glencoe and Fort William to Invergarry, then over spectacular Kintail on the A87 to join the A890, again clearly signed to Lochcarron.
Lochcarron is also served by rail connections from Inverness on the famous Kyle line, one of Britain's most scenic railways. Strathcarron station is about three miles from Lochcarron village. Inverness can be reached by overnight sleeper from London Euston, arriving in Inverness at 08.37 with ten minutes to spare to cross the platform to the Kyle of Lochalsh train. We can arrange a taxi to meet you at the station or car hire is available from the local garage.
