Welcome to Ardnamurchan...
Ardnamurchan , Moidart, Morvern, Sunart and Ardgour form the area in and around the most westerly peninsula of the British Mainland. Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean and with views from every shore of islands, castles, lochs and wilderness we offer you an amazing part of the West Coast of Scotland.
If you have only just discovered us, welcome to the best kept secret in the British Isles, and we can't wait to share it with you. If you are returning to this wonderful Scottish coastline then welcome back.
With sweeping white sands and crystal clear seas, ancient woodlands and mountains, not to mention the wildlife, jaw dropping scenery and Celtic legends, a visit to the most picturesque land in Scotland will be unforgettable. Once visited - it will be forever in your heart!
Morvern flanks one side of Loch Sunart and the sound of Mull and Moidart to the east of the peninsula has Loch Shiel as one boundary and the sea as its other. Within these regions are the villages of Acharacle, Salen, Strontian, Ardgour, Lochaline, Kilchoan and Glenuig - each with their own charm and attractions.
