Directions

The Croft House is easy to find if you STAY ON THE MAIN ROAD A896 Lochcarron - Kinlochewe.

To get to The Croft House - do not turn onto the loop road at either end of the village, as you will completely miss the house!

When you get to the Shieldaig village signs:

From the south ignore the left turn into the village, carry on up the hill = 1st house on left.

From the north ignore the right turn carry along the main road for 1/4 mile, last house on right, just before dropping down the hill. There is a blue/grey sign at the roadside (see photo below) which simply says 'The Croft House'.

The drive entrance is right by the southern speed change sign. Unload by the gate, it's easier to park at the top of the drive - 2 marked parking spaces by the road sign.

One postcode covers the whole village - so using the postcode IV54 8XN will not bring you to the door. Use the co-ordinates below:

From the north

  At Kinlochewe turn onto the A896 signed towards Shieldaig, you are approx 30 minutes from The Croft House. This is a single track road with passing places. Ignore the Torridon village turning to the right, go past the Torridon Hotel / Inn, up over the hill. At the Shieldaig village and the 1st speed reduction sign, stay on the main road. The Croft House is the last house on the right (1/4 mile further on), just before going down a hill and beside the 2nd speed change sign as you exit the straggle of houses along the road. Please park at the top of the drive, my front door is the seaward side.

From the South

From Lochcarron it's about 30 minutes to The Croft House along single track road. Go through Kishorn and stay on the main road, ignore the left turn to go over the Bealach na Ba to Applecross. Continue for 15 minutes through some wonderful rocky, wild landscapes; as the road levels off about sea level pass through a wooded stretch of road and ignore the left turn - Applecross Coast Road (if you've come from Applecross around the Coast then turn left at the jucntion). Go over a cattle grid.

entrance to shieldaig from south

Continue along the lochside and ignore the left turn to Shieldaig Main Street. Stay on the A896 heading north. The Croft House is the first house on the left hand side as you get to the top of the small hill. The drive entrance is just before the speed restriction sign. Please park at the top of the drive, my front door is the seaward side.
