Directions

Charisbourne can be found in the small hamlet of Arle.  This is situated 5.5 miles from Tobermory if you are travelling south and 4 miles from Salen if you are going in a northerly direction.

If coming from Tobermory, once you have negotiated the winding hill section of the road known as Gualann Dubh (Gillie Goo) you will come  across a long straight section of the road that starts at the entrance to Ardnacross Farm. Follow this section until the road starts to turn.  As the road begins to climb once again you will notice Arle Lodge on your left hand side. Charisbourne is the next turning on the left after approximately 70 yards.

For anyone coming from Salen then it is just as easy to find us.  Go through Salen and along the waterside, passing the abandoned trawlers. Follow the road and take the right hand turning over the river Aros. Follow this road through its twist and turns for approximately 2.5 miles and look for a bungalow on your right hand side with a large Saltire cross in the garden! This is Drumbuie view, and Charisbourne is the next turning on the right.  You will see the house as you come over the breast of the hill.

For those of you who are commited to using the Sat. Nav. beware!  The postcode of PA72 6JS covers about four miles of the coastline, and so you may well find yourself at Kentallen Farm which seems to be the point where any Sat. Nav. will deliver you if using the postcode as a destination.   So trust your judgement and follow these directions.....you're almost there.
