When you arrive at the Grand Hotel junction, turn towards the Victoria Park entrance, pass this and take the immediate left (Park Road), about 50 meters in take the left at the Y junction going uphill (Wedderburn Road) travel about 300 meters (the road turns naturally to the left) and you will find yourself in front of the main entrance of Good Shepherd Convent (on your left). Continue straight from here (ignoring the natural right turn) between a red postbox and garbage bin, and this lane ends at a large black gate - Ferncliff.

Anyway she told us things were rough... so we suggested that the two of them go up to Ferncliff in Nuwara Eliya.
