Arriving from the South via Mallaig or Skye bridge on the A87.

Approximately 6.5 miles after the Sligachan Hotel you come to a very sharp left hand bend and bridge. On the bend and about 20 yards before the bridge is a right hand turn that is sign posted to Braes. Travel half a mile on this single track road to the T junction and turn right. You are now on the B883.

Follow this road for a further 5 miles (ignoring the left hand turn to Camas Tianavaig) until you get to the next left hand turn signposted Gedintailor, Balmeanach and Peinachorrain (at this point you can see The Bothy up ahead and to the right) continue ahead and take the second right hand turn signed The Bothy and Easan Dubh. The Bothy is the first house on the right, over the cattle grid.

Arriving from the North via Portree on the A87 (or if you miss the first turn off coming from the South).

Approximately 2 miles from Portree you come to the B883 turn-off on the left. The road is single track and drops steeply, bending to the left and over the River Varragill. At the top of the rise follow the road to the right (ignoring the turn off straight ahead to Penifiler. A little further on you are joined by the road from the south on the right.)

Follow this road for a further 5 miles (ignoring the left hand turn to Camas Tianavaig) until you get to the next left hand turn signposted Gedintailor, Balmeanach and Peinachorrain (at this point you can see The Bothy up ahead and to the right) continue ahead and take the second right hand turn signed The Bothy and Easan Dubh. The Bothy is the first house on the right over the cattle grid.
