Location

Lochcarron is situated on the west coast of Scotland some 63 miles due west of the City of Inverness, the Capital of the Scottish Highlands. Click Here to view the location via Google Maps.

By Road

From the south, there are 2 possible routes by which to approach Lochcarron.


Firstly, the more scenic, but rather slower, route follows the A82 along the shores of Loch Lomond, over Rannoch Moor and through Glen Coe to Fort William; thence, continuing on the A82 north to Invergarry, and then via the A87 and A890/A896. From Fort William onwards, you will pass several well-known landmarks on the way - the Commando Monument at Spean Bridge, Cluanie Inn, the 5 Sisters of Kintail, and Eilean Donan Castle.


Secondly, the somewhat faster, albeit further, route, which quite simply takes the A9 north from Perth to Inverness, thence via the A835 to Garve, the A832 to Achnasheen, and finally the A890/A896. This route encompasses mostly good fast roads, although the single carriageway sections of the A9 can sometimes seem frustratingly slow in heavy traffic.


By Rail

For railway enthusiasts, there is the famous Kyle Line which featured as one of Michael Palin’s “Great Railway Journeys of the World”.


This line runs from Inverness (from where there are rail links to the rest of the UK) to Kyle of Lochalsh and passes through some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe.
