The Road to Lochdubh

This is the road into Lochdubh and appears in various episodes. It is especially memorable of course as the location where TV John holds up the line of police cars pursuing him in "The Big Freeze" in the first series.
Other shots of it from different angles also appear in "Isobel pulls it off" in the second series where the village bus has an accident and Lachlan looses the multi million pound winning National Lottery ticket. It is also where Isobel photographs the car in the same episode.

Distance from Plockton
 around 20 miles
 Although the road can be approached from the east or the west ends the best views are to be had by going west to east. NB These directions presume you are coming from Plockton Location Map
 Therefore from the A87 take the turning sign posted Dornie and after a few hundred yards turn right onto the single track road sign posted Carr Brae
 After a few hundred yards there is a parking area on the left which gives excellent views over Eilean Donan castle and Loch Duich
 Continue along for a couple of miles to the top of Carr Brae where there is a parking area on the right with a gate giving access onto the viewpoint. The "road to Lochdubh" can then be seen on the right.
