Lochcarron is situated on the West Coast of the
Scottish Highlands, some 63 miles west of Inverness. From the south, there are 2 possible routes by which to
Firstly, the more scenic, but rather slower, route
follows the A82 along the shores of Loch Lomond, through Rannoch Moor and
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 famous
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 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 A9 can sometimes be
frustratingly slow in heavy traffic.
