To reach the house, continue past Brae and follow the main road, passing the road to Mangaster on the left. Turn right to Sullom, the turn in just before the bus stop. Follow the road until you come to the junction heading straight over the cattle grid or around to the community centre and go straight ahead over the cattle grid. Follow the road to the end and you will reach Bonarbrak.
