Birchbrae is 8 miles south of Fort William and sits in a woodland clearing up of Forest track off the A82. The Corran Ferry is some 500 metres away which crosses Loch Linnhe to the Ardnamurchan peninsula.
On leaving the village of Onich you will come out of the 40mph zone and pass a takeaway food stop on the right called ‘The Pond’. Continue through a few bends until the road straightens and go over a flat bridge. There is a turning immediately over the bridge to the right to Inchree. Do not turn here but go straight down the straight stretch of road which bears to the right at the end. Round this corner there is a large green sign on the left indicating the Corran Ferry and Strontian. Our turning is about 20 metres past this sign on the right (by the large bus stop). Turn up the forest track and continue for 250 metres. Here you will find Birchbrae. If you get to the Corran Ferry turning you have gone too far!!
Leave Fort William and travel south down the A82 towards Onich. After 8 miles you will see the turning to the Corran Ferry on the right. Carry straight on for about 250 metres past a turning on the right to Corran Gardens, and the road bears gently round to the right. On the left is a large bus stop. Our turning is here on the left just past the bus shelter. Turn up the forest track and continue for 250 metres. Here you will find Birchbrae.
