Location & Travel


Inchnadamph Explorers Lodge is on the NC500 and Cape Wrath Trail

Inchnadamph is one of only four "stations" on the Cape Wrath Trail which intersect with the NC500, and the Inchnadamph Lodge is a welcome place to feast & refuel after a long hike on the trail.

If driving the NC500, you are no doubt travelling up north from Ullapool (24 miles, 32 mins) or coming south from Kylesku (9 miles, 14 mins). Be prepared to experience spectacular scenery as the roads wind around the isolated mountain peaks that make North West Scotland so unique.

The coastal fishing port of Lochinver (12 miles west) is the main village in the parish with shops, a self-serve fuel stop, two stores (Spar & Nisa), a post office, medical centre, and several bar/restaurants - including the Lochinver Larder, famous for its Lochinver Pies.

Inchnadamph is 81 miles (1 hour 43 mins) from Inverness by car.

Inchnadamph is also one of the main "stations" on the Scottish National Trail that covers the 864 kilometre-long unofficial long distance walking route running the length of Scotland from Kirk Yetholm to Cape Wrath.
