Location

Anam Cara lies in a tranquil setting 600 feet above sea level at the head of the Leachkin  Brae on the west side of Inverness just up from the Craig Phadrig Forest.

The Centre has stunning south easterly views over Inverness and towards the Monadhliath Mountains.

Anam Cara is set in eight acres of land and whilst a mere three miles from the city centre it is surrounded by farm and woodland.

How to find us

Arriving By Car: (click on the picture for a larger map view)

From the A9
Leaving the A9 at the Kessock Bridge roundabout head into Inverness following the signs for Dingwall and Beauly and the A862. After crossing the Caledonian Canal turn left at the main traffic lights and head up on King Brude Road. This soon becomes General Booth Road and meets another set of lights. Turn right here into Leachkin Road and follow this uphill, crossing straight over a small roundabout before taking the second turn on the right (just as the road makes a sharp bend to the left)

This is Leachkin Brae and runs steeply uphill for a whole mile becoming a single track road. The road ends at a turning circle beside a green fence labelled "Anam Cara". This is our top car park and the most convenient for the Tufty Top/Main Meeting Venue.

An additonal car park can be found by continuing along the fence on a dirt road and turning left through a green gate  and following the signs for Parking.
