Driving directions

From Montreal take highway 10, toward Sherbrooke and up to the end.
Be carefull, watch the road because near Sherbrooke, highway 55 crosses highway 10 which may be confusing.

At the end of highway 10, turn left on road 214 heading East. After 3km up to East Angus, follow the road for an additionnal 10km up to road 108, turn left then (the 108 and 214 overlap each other for a short distance). After 2km, get back to 214 by turning on your right. After 20km, you will be at the entry of Scotstown. After 1 or 1.5km you will pass over the bridge crossing the "rivière aux Saumons" (Salmons river). On the right you will sea a huge brick chimney. You will cross the railroad crossing and continue on your right on the 214.

After 1km, you will cross again another railway crossing, watch on your left for a gravel road the "chemin Dell" (Dell road) in the curve, take it on your left. After about 3km, you will see a gate on your left. Keep going on the left route and after 1km you will see on your right a descending road leading to the quarry. You just then have to park your vehicule.
