Carr Brae

This is the general area where Alex has a meeting with fate in "Radio Lochdubh" in the second series. The actual location used is a couple of miles further south and involves quite a long steep walk over a forestry track but a very similar view can be had here.
A fateful spot for Alex Carr Brae

LocationArea Map
 Carr Brae off the A87 near Dornie on the road from the south to Plockton
Map reference
 Landranger Sheet 33 NG 895 245
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.
