The Weir House is off the beaten track – but not so remote that you would miss out on the tourist must-sees of Sri Lanka.   Situated in Sri Lanka’s central massif, the Weir House is a great base from which to explore the “hill country”.  We are also a half hour’s drive from the tourist town of Peradeniya, home to the lush Royal Botanical Gardens.
Ulapane is located between the towns of Gampola and Nawalapitiya.  You could reach us by either road or train.  

By RoadYou can reach the Weir House by traveling on either the Kandy Road or the Hatton Road.  Travel time on the Kandy Road is approximately 4 hours, and 3 ½ hours on the Hatton Road.  If, you wish us to, the Weir House would be happy to assist you in organizing your transportation.
