How to Find Achalochan House
Co-ordinates for your Satnav are:
These co-ordinates take you to the house itself. Those shown on the map below and on the Google Places page, show the turning off the A863.
Please note that it might direct you via the Mallaig-Armadale ferry - if you do use this route, rather than the Skye Bridge, it is important to check times and book the ferry crossing in advance. Also please bear in mind that some SatNavs work by postcode rather than geographical co-ordinates - as postcode areas in the Highlands are very large this will often land you in the wrong place so we recommend that you pay close attention to the directions on this page.
From Portree take the A87 towards Uig for 400 metres, then left onto the B885 towards Struan / Bracadale. After approx 9 miles turn right at junction onto the A863 towards Dunvegan, after 3 miles the b+b is sign posted right off this road.
From the Skye Bridge take the A87 towards Portree. After 25 miles turn left onto the A863 at Sligachan, heading for Dunvegan; after 18 miles [approx] the b+b is sign posted right off this road.
Use the plus and minus controls at the top left of the map to zoom in and out, and the arrows to move the map north, south, east and west. You can also re-orient the map by holding your left mouse button down over the map, and moving the mouse around. You can look at a satellite photograph, but please bear in mind that it may have been taken in the past and therefore may not show an exact representation of what is there now. There is a link to find directions from your starting point on the marker - you can use the back button on your browser to return to the website after. Please note that it might direct you via the Mallaig-Armadale ferry - see notes above regarding Satnav, and that the marker on Google maps is set for the junction off the main road, not for the house itself, for which there are detailed directions and geographical co-ordinates above.
