Follow the A96 towards Nairn from east or west. The accommodation is on the corner of Seafield Street and Seabank Road on the north side of the A96. The house has no number but is clearly marked with a sign on the corner and one on Seabank Road. The carpark is accessed from Seafield Street and again is clearly marked. Nairn is found on the A96. This is the main trunk road between Aberdeen and Inverness. From Inverness take the A96 for approximately 14 miles. When in Nairn watch out for the large Parish Church on the left and take left following the church. This is Seabank Road. Proceed down Seabank for about 800yards and Inveran Lodge will be on the right at the junction of Seafield Street and Seabank Road.
Coming from the East (Aberdeen) continue through Nairn and past the Fire Station at the main traffic intersection. The next street to the right is Albert and then Seabank. You could turn down Albert and find Seafield Street. Take a left onto Seafield and Inveran Lodge is 100 yards on the right. You will come to the car park first. Alternatively pass Albert and take Seabank and follow the instructions in the previous paragraph.
The airport is 7 miles from Nairn to the West towards Inverness. Proceed out of the airport using the new perimeter road and take a left onto the A96. Follow the above instructions from Inverness. Inverness train station does service Nairn with some interconnecting trains. Nairn Station is 10 minutes walk to the lodge or just a minute and a half in a taxi. We do usually try and collect our guests from the train station. The Bus Station is in the centre of Nairn adjacent to the Fire Station. Again it is walkable but we could oblige when transport is available.
