What is the Ardnamurchan?

The stunning Ardnamurchan peninsula is the most westerly part of the British mainland and is quite literally the end of the road. In Scottish Gaelic Ardnamurchan translates to Àird nam Murchan meaning headland of the great seas.

This is a beautiful 50-square-mile peninsula in Lochaber, Highland, Scotland, noted for being very unspoilt and undisturbed, with amazing seascapes over the islands seemingly around every corner. Its remoteness is accentuated by the main access route being a single track road for much of its length.

The great outdoors are here for you to explore with some of the best scenery on the West Coast of Scotland. From the open seas to secluded native woodlands, the variety is matched only by the quality recognised by the nature reserves and other designated sites in our areas.

Take a walk through the countryside with or without your dog, cycling around the beautiful scenery, fish in the Scottish rivers and loch’s or spot the incredibly varied wildlife; there's plenty to see and do.

Ardmanurchan is home to most of Scotland's famous wildlife including Otters, Red Deer, Pine Martens, Red Squirrels.

Festivals, Highland Games and many modern visitor attractions also provide plenty of activity and entertainment in Ardnamurchan.

Or if you just want peace and tranquillity, the air is so clear and the area so unspoilt, it is not difficult to find a corner somewhere that can become your own particular haven.

For your Short breaks in Scotland, visit one of the top dog friendly Scottish highland hotels with Kilcamb lodge.
