Routefinder websites don't seem to have caught up with the southern bypass round Inverness. This road has been complete for many years, but some of the sites still direct you through the town centre!

SatNavs, especially, TomTom, recommend an even more unusual route if you enter the postcode for the Log Cabins, telling you to turn off 5 miles before Inverness. This is is very picturesque road, much of it single-track with passing places, and well worth exploring during your stay, but probably not at the end of a very long drive! Carry on to the first exit to Inverness instead.

Driving from the South of Scotland

The fastest, easiest route is up the motorway to Perth, and then up the A9 to Inverness. This is very straightforward, and you should leave the A9 at the junction immediately after this flyover, (signed to Culcabock and Kingsmills), which takes you straight on to the by-pass (B8082). Follow this road straight over a series of roundabouts, until you reach one where you can't go straight on! Here you turn left onto the B862 Dores road - it is less than 6 miles to the village.(There is a big Tesco store just off the A9 -if you are looking for a more relaxed shop there is a smaller and quieter supermarket, also Tesco, at the end of the bypass. This one is the last shop you will pass.)

Directions from A9

From Dores
This is the only road junction in the village, and for the Byre or the Log Cabins you must bear round up ther hill - away from Loch Ness (do not follow the loch shore out of the village).

From Dores

The Byre
About 1.5 miles up the hill (B862) you will come to The Byre and the rest of the Kindrummond Farm buildings. There is really not much else on this very quiet road road, so you can't miss it. The driveway, however, is 50 yards before the buildings (seen here on the right before the signs went up), so you probably will miss that the first time! (You can also turn in right beside the building, if you miss the driveway, but it's not recommended because of poor visibility.)

The Byre

The Log Cabins
Just past The Byre, about 50m, you will see this turning to the right. The Cabins and Drummond Farm are about 700m down this side road. Go first to the farmhouse (on the right after the big grey shed), and you will be directed to your Cabin. A few years ago we added a fine land mark in the form of a 20m wind turbine, which is visible well before the turning off the B862, so that should help!

The West Coast Route

There is an option to drive to Dores up the west side of the country. The advantage is that this road (mostly A82) passes through some even more spectacular scenery than the A9, including some of the most famous names in Scotland - Loch Lomond, Glen Coe and Ben Nevis. However, be prepared for this route to take up to an hour longer, although this differential can be much less if you are lucky with the traffic. The problem is that there is no dual carriageway, the road is twisty, and there are few overtaking opportunities. This is not a road to be in a hurry on, but it is quite a special journey if you can relax and enjoy it without getting frustrated. Be advised that there is no shop bigger than a village store once you have passed Fort William, and that you must turn right in Fort Augustus, not follow the A82 which will take you down the wrong side of Loch Ness.
