How to Reach Us

Great Glen Lodges, Kilfinnan, Scotland, can be found on the northwest shore of Loch Lochy, in the heart of the Great Glen.

By Road

Our postcode is PH34 4EB. Enter ‘Great Glen Lodges, Kilfinnan, PH34 4EB’ into your GPS/Sat Nav or online map service to get here.

Note that some GPS/Sat Navs might tell you that you have reached your destination when you get to Kilfinnan Farm. We’re a bit further on from the farm, however. Just carry on up the hill and along the track a little way until you reach the Great Glen Lodges sign at the top of the road.

Please also be aware that the last quarter-mile or so is an unadopted rough-track road that we share with the forestry commission. Though it gets resurfaced each year, it can sometimes be quite bumpy, so a bit of care needs to be taken. A normal car can easily negotiate the track, but you’ll want to drive slowly and not rush things.

  • Take the next turn right after the Well of the Seven Heads, signed Balmaglaster, Kilfinnan. Care should be taken as this is a single-track road.
