1. Re: travelling to marvig.

From Tarbart:

The drive takes about 1 hour and goes over the North Harris mountains. From the ferry take the A859 to Steornablagh (Stornaway) for about 26km. Just past the Land Raiders Monument, turn right onto the B8060 at the small town called Baile Ailein. There is a garage on the right hand corner. Follow this road through Habost and Garyvard. The road becomes a single lane with passing places. After 12km take the second left turn. On the junction there is a turning areas for buses. Follow the road for 1.5k to a T junction, and turn right. Follow this road for 2.5k and you should see the sign to Marvig. Turn left to Marvig, over the Cattle grid and follow the road down into the Village. Go past the old Post Office, and follow the road down past the sign for Planasker Old school, and the cottage is on the left hand side. Park just to the left of the turning area, but be careful of the ditch.

From Stornaway:

Drive takes about 1 hour. Take the A859 to Tarbart for about 24k and turn left at. Baile Ailein. Follow the instructions above.
