How to Get Here

By road from Inverness

From Inverness, follow the A9 in a northerly direction, passing through Golspie, Brora, Helmsdale and Dunbeath.  At Latheron, turn left, continuing on the A9, towards Thurso, and remain on this road (passing the wind farm) for approximately 12 miles until Mybster.  Turn left at this junction onto the B870 and continue for about 2.5 miles towards Westerdale.  The old bridge at Westerdale is situated between beats 8 and 9.

By road from Wick Airport

Alternatively, if flying to Wick Airport, drive south through the town, crossing over the Wick River; turn right on to Thurso Road (A882).  After 5 miles, on reaching Watten, turn left on to the B870 to Mybster; at the junction with the A9, cross straight over and continue to Westerdale.
