Directions to Achaneich

From Fort William or Inverness (A82)

If you come along the A82 through Fort William, you’ll turn on to the A86 at Spean Bridge (immediately after the bridge itself). Continue through the village and keep going for about a mile. After a series of bends, the road straightens out for a bit, and Achaneich is on the right (south) side there. The main house is set back (it has a large rhodedendron hedge), and you’ll be on the gate before you see the sign. If you miss it, just continue on to Inverroy where you’ll find places to turn around.

From Dalwhinnie (A86)

If you come along the A9 (from Edinburgh) and turn westwards onto the A86 at Dalwhinnie, you’ll be travelling along the A86 and come through Roy Bridge and Inverroy before Spean Bridge.

Achaneich is on the left (south) side of the road soon after Inverroy, and you can just make out the Stable Cottage through the trees. There is a sign at the gate, and a large rhodedendron bush goes along the fence.

Be Warned!

Most satnavs suggest that Achaneich (PH34 4EU) is actually in Spean Bridge, up a street called ~West Tirindrish~ by the primary school. If you end up there, turn around, turn left (east) and keep going!

Where am I staying?

As you turn into the gate, you can see the Stable Cottage in front of you on the left hand side. If you are staying in the Chalet, continue straight down past the cottage and the chalet will reveal itself beyond the trees.

Do not follow the drive towards the right, as that will bring you up to the house, and turning around isn’t always easy up there.
