Directions from the West

This is the route you will use if you are heading from towns such as Ullapool or Lochinver on the west coast.

Aim for Ledmore Junction which is between Ullapool (on the A835) and Lochinver (on the A837). At Ledmore Junction follow the signs for Lairg and Bonar Bridge. The A837 from Lochinver goes straight on; if you are heading from Ullapool you turn right at Ledmore Junction.

After about 17 miles, you will see a small turning to the right signposted Inveroykel and Culrain. (If you reach Rosehall you have gone slightly too far; the turning is just before Rosehall). Turn right and follow the road over the bailey bridge. Keep following the road to Culrain which is about 10 miles. (Sometimes the bailey bridge is closed due to flooding, in which case head straight on through Rosehall and take the turning on the right for Invershin (A 837), and then turn right onto the A836 for Bonar Bridge and Ardgay. If you do this please click here for the directions from Ardgay to Culrain.)

The map below is set primarily to show the relationship to the northwest of Scotland. Please note that the marker is set on the village not specifically the bed and breakfast. However you can move the map around and zoom in or out to see other locations. Culrain is near Bonar Bridge and Ardgay towards the bottom centre-right area of the map.
