To visit the fort at Dounie, travel on the A836 from Edderton towards Ardgay. About 2 miles north west of Edderton crossroads locate a forest track leading off left into a conifer wood opposite fields (Ardvannie). Look for a green signpost on the right. There is a car park at the beginning of the track just before a boom.
To reach the fort walk uphill on the track and turn right onto a new track. Find a finger–post on your left at the start of the path that snakes up the hillside.
On leaving the trees continue up over the heather on a strimmed path until it flattens out.
Forestry Commission Scotland has erected interpretation signs at the car park and at the upper end of the path.
