Port Appin is a short scenic drive from either Oban or Fort William. The village, on the shores of Loch Linnhe, is 2.5 miles off the A828 road in Appin - that's the main road that runs between Oban (Argyll & Bute) and Fort William (Lochaber, West Highlands).

Follow signs for Port Appin off the A828 and keep going to the end of the road where you will find the pier with the carpark behind. You will pass the Appin Craft Shop (formerly Seahorse gift shop) on the way where our tickets are sold.
