Although Lochdon is a small village, Wild Cottage is tucked away in a quiet corner. We therefore recommend that you download our map and directions. See below for a map of Lochdon and directions to Wild Cottage or download the printable PDF version.
If you use a sat nav please be aware that the whole of Lochdon has the same postcode! Although the sat nav will find Lochdon it will not find Wild Cottage. (Our neighbours are very sympathetic but it can wear a bit thin sometimes continually re-directing folk!) If your sat nav will take Ordnance Survey co-ordinates please enter: NM 726 330. Alternatively our Latitude is 56.434 and our Longitude is -5.689. Either of these should put you right on our front drive; (but please don't use our postcode).
