Travelling from the north or south on the A82
The most convenient and shortest route would be to take the popular 5-minute crossing on the Corran Ferry (9 miles south of Fort William) where you will enjoy stunning views of the imposing Corran Lighthouse and the mountainous scenery overlooking Loch Linnhe. The ferry crosses Loch Linnhe, at the Corran Narrows, at half-hourly intervals until 2130 hours each day. The picturesque ferry crossing saves over an hour’s drive around the head of Loch Linnhe. The current cost of a one way trip is £8.50. Foot passengers, including push-bikes cross for free. The current ferry timetable is available here.
As you disembark the MV Corran, turn left on to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula. You will immediately experience the spectacular scenic coastline before driving through dramatic Glen Tarbet and arriving in the pretty village of Strontian, a journey of around 14 miles.
Upon arriving in Strontian village, continue past the village green/shop and across the stone bridge. Take an immediate right turn (signposted Ariundle Forest Walks, Polloch, Bellsgrove). ‘Uircheann Righ’ is just under 1 mile along this road. Look out for No. 28 Anaheilt and our large wooden house sign on your left hand side. Upon arrival take the sweeping road to the left up the hill. Uircheann Righ is situated at the top of the hill.
Travelling from Skye via Mallaig
Turn right off the A830 Mallaig to Fort William Road on to the A861 at Lochailort. Stay on this road and pass through the villages of Glenuig, Acharacle and Salen. Arriving in Strontian, you will pass Kilcamb House Hotel on your right and descend a tree lined road into Strontian Village. Take an immediate left turn signposted Polloch, Bellsgrove etc ( if you cross the stone bridge into the Village then you have gone too far). Continue along this road for just under 1 mile – look out for No. 28 Anaheilt and our large wooden house sign on your left hand side. Upon arrival take the sweeping road up the hill to the left. Uircheann Righ is situated at the top of the hill.
