Approaching from Perth on the A9, turn off at Ballinluig on the A827 signed Aberfeldy. After about 3 miles you will come to the village of Grandtully. Turn right over the bridge and go straight up the hill, following the signs for churches and the village shop. At the T junction at the shop turn left, signed Weem. You will pass Pitcastle and Fyndynate on your right. About 100 yards further on you will see wheelie bins on the right. (If you see a sign on the right that says Cloichfoldich house and flat only, you have gone too far). Turn right at the bins and follow the winding single-track road up the hill. After 0.2 mile, turn left along the tree line signed Ballinduin. The road is a track here, but after a few yards becomes a proper road once more. About 0.3 mile further on you will come to three cottages on the left on the side of the hill. The first is Allt Mor and Taigh Fuirich is the next gate on the left.
From Aberfeldy turn right into Taybridge Road at the Cross Roads/traffic lights, after crossing Wades Bridge turn right at the end of the Poplar Avenue on to the Strathtay Road and continue for about 4.5 miles. On passing a small stone bridge, turn immediately left. Follow the road up the hill and take the next left turn. Follow the road westwards and the house is located on the left hand side.
