Getting Here: 

The Cottage at Mackay’s is located in the heart of Durness, the most northwesterly village on mainland Britain, 110 milles north from Inverness airport, which offers daily flights from the south.

By Car


From Inverness take the A9 north to the Tore roundabout. You may now choose the east coast or the west coast route to continue your journey, both are through stunning scenery but the east coast route is about 30 minutes shorter.

The shortest route follows the A9 to its junction with the B9176 over Struie Hill to Bonar Bridge and then follows the A836 through Lairg. At a point about 2 miles north of Lairg you turn west on to the A838 and from there, let the stunning scenery be your guide as you pass Loch Shin, the mountains of Ben Stack, Arkle and Fionaven, before reaching Laxford Bridge. Turn north once more and head for Durness. The west coast route, although longer, again passes through superb scenery. From Tore go west on the A835 towards Garve and then on to Ullapool. Remain on the A835 until you reach Ledmore Junction. There you turn north on to the A837 driving via Scourie to Laxford Bridge and continue on the single track road to Durness. Whichever route you choose a warm welcome awaits you.
