Directions to Stronvar
After arriving at the pier, you first need to get into Arinagour village, about 1/3 mile away. Through the village, past the shop and petrol station, then take the left-hand fork, along the "West End Road" for about 5 miles. After a long straight past the airport, turn left at the "T" junction by Arileod Farm. 200 yards on, Stronvar is signposted at a gate on the left. Go through the gate at the corner and follow the track (across a grassy field) to the house, about 400 metres further on.
