Craigdarroch Lodge Hotel is just 2 hours from London Luton 

Sometimes you can get a flight from as little as 12.50 each way (Easyjet) but you have to book well in advance.



We also have excellent Rail Services daily trains to London and an overnight sleeper train. Direct rail services connect Inverness with Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow and local services to the north and west. By road there are excellent links to all the major cities with Edinburgh and Glasgow being only 2 and half drive from Inverness. 

To reach Craigdarroch Lodge Hotel by car from Inverness take the A9 over the Kessock suspension bridge. At Tore roundabout take A835 continue following Ullapool direction signs. On reaching village of Contin drive through the village, approximately half a mile out of village you will see Craigdarroch Lodge Hotel  clearly sign posted on right hand side of road. Turn left into Craigdarroch Drive, continue to the very end, about 600 yards.

Craigdarroch Drive, Contin

 We can arrange low cost self drive car hire or taxi to be available at either the airport or railway station.

From Inverness bus station there is an Inverness traction bus No. 27 which leaves on the hour every hour until 3p.m. After 3pm it misses an hour and a half and the next one is at 4.30 and again and 5.30 (which is the last bus). The journey takes approx 1 hour and costs about 2.80. You ask to get off at the turning point in Contin.. From there there is a 15/20 minute walk to the hotel.

Alternatively you can catch the "Westerbus" which is a quicker alternative. This is the Inverness to Ullapool bus which if you ask the driver will stop at the end of our drive "Craigdarroch Drive". The journey takes approx 30 minutes. It costs slightly more but I think is worth it.  There is only one time for this bus approx 5.20pm from Inverness daily (except Sundays)


Always check timetables for buses

 Have a safe Journey !!
