How to Get There
Travellers from the south and east join the A87 at the head of Loch Cluanie. The road winds through Glen Shiel - passing the battlefield which is marked by a cairn at the roadside. The Glen ends at Shiel Bridge, at the head of Loch Duich. The road the bears right and follows the northern shore of the loch to Eilean Donan and Dornie; the old highway over Carr Brae forks right from Inverinate into the village of Dornie. This road affords spectacular views of the castle and surrounding countryside.
The bridge at Dornie takes the main highway over Loch Long to Ardelve; a few miles beyond there is a right fork which leads to Strome Ferry and the north-west Highlands. Continuing westwards, however, the main road terminates at Kyle of Lochalsh where the Skye Road Bridge crosses to Kyleakin in Skye.
