The most westerly point on the British mainland.
Ardnamurchan (Àird nam Murchan: headland of the great seas) is a peninusla in the Lochaber area of the Highlands of Scotland. It is known for being very unspoiled and undisturbed. Its remoteness is accentuated by the main access route being a single track road for much of its length. Its boundary takes in the villages of Acharacle and Salen and right down to Kilchoan and beyond and is made up of crofting communities. Its close neighbours are the lovely scenic villages Strontian in Sunart, Ardgour, Moidart, and Lochaline in Morvern. It is the most westerly point of mainland Great Britain.
Places to go, things to do…
Close to our cabins are the beautiful white sands of Sanna Bay. And there is also a brilliant walk over the hill to Sanna from the village of Portuairk and its wee sandy bays, where our cottages are.
The most westerly point on the British mainland. Enjoy guided tours up the lighthouse tower for panoramic views of outer and inner Hebrides, a wee wander around the site and a fresh ground coffee and cake at the coffee & gift shop.
Climb Ardnamurchan’s highest hill. Average walking time is around 1-2hrs and well worth it for the panoramic views up Loch Sunart and north to the Cuillin Hills of Skye.
