Turn second right into a large parking area. No. 79 is immediately straight ahead of you part of the house being over the alleyway leading to the front of the house. Kantersted Road continues past the turning into the house, to Nedersund Road lies almost directly opposite Westerloch Drive on the south side of Clickimin Loch. Drive to the end of Nedersund Road and turn left into Kantersted Road, then first left into the parking area as above.
