How To Find Lochcarron 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.
By Road There are 2 main routes by which to approach the area:-
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.
Once you arrive in Lochcarron drive through the village past the church of Scotland on your left and the Royal bank of Scotland on your right directly opposite the shinty pitch, there is a sign for lochcarron weavers and the road sign is for strome and ardaneskin take that road sign posted Church street and follow the road for about a mile and the cottage is on your right hand side.
