Ardnamurchan - the best kept secret in Scotland
Ardnamurchan is one of the hidden delights of the Scottish Highlands. It is a large finger of land which protrudes into the Atlantic Ocean just north of Oban and South of Ft William. A short 2 minute ferry crossing (Corran to Ardgour) will transport you to a different world of unsurpassed hidden highland beauty, hard to beat anywhere in Scotland. It is also the gateway to all the small Inner Hebridean Islands including Mull, Iona, Muck, Egg, Rum, Coll and Tiree. But to ignore this staggeringly beautiful part of the west coast is to miss a truly magical experience. Fresh seafood in abundance, excellent walking and bird watching, extraordinary wildlife - seals, eagles, dolphins, whales, otters, pine martens, wildcats red squirrels and magnificent red deer can all be seen here.
A walk or drive through Ardnamurchan would reveal some magnificent seascapes, wonderful mountain climbs, deserted white sandy beaches which would rival the best the Caribbean can offer.
In short - Ardnamurchan beguiles all who visit here but beware, once sampled, you just have to return - one visit is never enough…

One of the best small luxury hotels in Scotland, Kilcamb Lodge sits peacefully on the shores of Loch Sunart in 22 acres of unspoiled meadow and woodland. You'll get a tingle of excitement when you cross the ferry to Ardnamurchan, an unspoilt Highland idyll on the most western peninsula in Britain and gateway to a myriad of wonderful Hebredian Islands.
Kilcamb Lodge Hotel stands quietly on the shores of Loch Sunart on the outskirts of the village of Strontian and from here you can sample the delights of the area including the islands of Mull, Eigg, Rum, Muck, Staffa, Coll and Tiree as well as the delightful Moydart Morvern and Ardnamurchan Peninsula fondly described as "almost an island" because it is surrounded by water on three sides. All the small isles are an easy drive or day trip away. There is so much to do and see, you'll want to return time and time again.
The Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014 and for the first time in history Whisky is now being produced (legally) on Ardnamurchan.
