  • Hitch-hiking is possible but at your own risk, and locals may offer rides if convenient.
  • Methven Travel offers a school bus service from Methven, but it must be booked in advance.
  • Please do not send parcels to the Lodge without a confirmed booking, as unknown packages will be returned to the sender.
