How  to find us

 The  spectacular journey to Pathend Bed and Breakfast is one of the most important parts of your holiday and Lochcarron’s location makes it easy to reach  from all parts of Scotland by a variety  of routes and forms of transport.

Just 69 miles from Inverness Airport, Pathend Cottage is at the heart of some of the finest wilderness areas of Europe. We’ve shown below some options on how to reach us, click here for  for a  Google Map of our location.

By Road

Although Lochcarron is at the centre of one of the remotest areas of Britain getting here by road is easy. Many visitors come by road from Inverness via the A9, A835 and A896 into the village. From Fort William travel via the A82, A87. Five miles past Eilean Donan Castle on the A87 take the  A890 to Lochcarron. Half a mile past Strathcarron Station at the T junction with the A96  turn left and Lochcarron is two miles on.

We would be happy to help you plan your trip.




By rail

The  railway line from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh is often  voted as one of the best rail journeys in the world and travels through spectacular mountain scenery, with a stunning vista at every turn. Up to 4 trains each day  in the summer call at Strathcarron, the nearest station. With prior arrangement we can collect guests but without a car in Wester Ross it is much harder to get around and appreciate this fabulous holiday destination.



Ferry Services

Many visitors to the west coast of Scotland like to travel here using one of the CalMac ferry services that link the coastal communities and islands.  There are two key routes that may be of use to visitors, these being the Mallaig to Armadale on Skye, further south, and Stornoway to Ullapool, north of Lochcarron. Ferries operate all year but do have reduced services at the weekends and in the winter.



Whether you are travelling on holiday, or visiting the west coast on business we would be delighted  to help you plan your journey.

We have shown below some websites that we hope will be of use, do give us a call if we can help in any way!
