Directions From Stoer Turnoff
Leave the B869 at the Stoer Village Hall, turning left if approaching from the south (Lochinver) or right if coming from the north (Drumbeg). The road is signposted to the "Stoerhead Lighthouse" and "Point of Stoer". Continue on this road along the Stoer Peninsula for about 2.3 miles until you eventually come down to the beach at Culkein Bay. As soon as you get to the bottom of the hill, and before the road goes along the top of the beach, take the first (unsignposted) turning on the left. Continue up this road for about 500m until you cross a cattle grid and the road takes a sharp right. Tigh Nan Shian is on your left.
