The starting point to Glenancross is
Fort William, at the head of Loch Linnhe, which is on the A82. This can be
approached from the South either via Glasgow and Loch Lomond to Crianlarich and
then to Fort William, or by heading for Stirling on the M9 and turning off at
Junction 10 to Doune, Callander, Crianlarich and Fort William. From the A82
north of Fort William take the A830 to Mallaig, stay on the A830 to Arisaig.
From Arisaig there are two options:
(1) The quicker of the two options. Take the new
road (A830) from Arisaig to Mallaig. Travel along this road for about 5 miles
until the Morar turn-off. Just before the Morar turn off, on your left is a
small exit signposted Camusdarach and Tougal. Follow this road for about 1.5
miles until you reach GlenanCross SelfCatering on your left, just after the Camusdarach
(2) The second route, the
more scenic route, follows the old road (A8008) from Arisaig, along the stunning
coastline. Turn off the new road and proceed through Arisaig, continue on the
old road for a few miles, go past the Traigh golf course on your right and
GlenanCross GuestHouse is a further 1.5 miles on the right hand side clearly
recognisable by the farm buildings in a dip. If you come to the car park for
Camusdarach beach you have come just too far and the house is just behind you.
GlenanCross SelfCatering is approximately
3 hours from Glasgow and 3.5 hours from Edinburgh by car.
