how to get here


If you are travelling from the south, Inverness can be reached in about three hours from central Scotland - and of course has direct rail and air connections. Allow about two hours by car from Inverness, because it's almost 100 miles, but you are going to one of the most wild and remote areas of Europe, and you'll want to enjoy the journey. Driving up here is still a pleasure and the scenery is unique.

Although Strathcraig is on a minor road, it is not so far off the beaten track. There is a normal full-width road from Inverness via Ullapool to Lochinver, and Strathcraig is only a couple of miles further on by way of a single-track road signposted for Strathan (where you'll find Strathcraig).  For the adventurous few, a more direct but rather challenging alternative route from Ullapool is via the well-named "Wee Mad Road", one of Britain's greatest and most scenic car drives (no caravans or HGVs). Most people prefer to keep to the main road!

Once you've arrived, you can put on your walking boots - but when you need something, the village is less than five minutes away in the car.
