From the South, North or East! Aim for the A82. Eight miles south of Fort William, or five miles north of Ballachulish, you’ll come to the Corran Ferry. Take the short journey over the Corran Narrows, and on leaving the ferry bear left onto the A861. Follow this road, ignoring any turnings off it, and after 20 minutes or so you’ll find yourself driving into Strontian. Keep on the main road through the village. When you come to the stone bridge, cross it, then turn right, signposted Bellsgrove and Polloch. After a mile, you’ll see our sign on the left. Turn up the track, and we’re the first, and only, house on the right. See comments on the right about using Satnav.
From the West. If you’ve found your way to Salen, Acharacle or beyond, aim east for Strontian along the A861. You’ll pass the turning for the Ben View hotel, and a mile later come into the 30mph zone. Immediately before the stone bridge, turn left, signposted Bellsgrove and Polloch. After a mile, you’ll see our sign on the left. Turn up the track, and we’re the first, and only, house on the right. See comments on the right about using Satnav.
The rail trip from Glasgow is absolutely stunning. The nearest railway station is Fort William; see below for how to get closer than that!
Citylink and other services regularly travel the A82. Make sure you get off at the Corran Ferry, unless you’re using a local bus which will bring you as far as the village. Use the links on the right to plan your route, and let us know as we’ll probably be able to arrange a lift if you’re stuck.
If you’re lucky enough to come by helicopter, then the Kilcamb Hotel in the village has a landing field. But then you’ll have to explain why you’re staying with us rather than them. Good luck with that.
By all means use a satnav to get you to Strontian, but most of the village is covered by the same postcode, and you may find yourself outside the school or the fire station! Once you’re approaching the village, we’d really recommend you then refer to the instructions on the left. Or a map.
If your satnav is clever enough to use Ordnance Survey coordinates, then try NM 81755 63007.
