Ardnamurchan Point - most westerly place in the British Isles

Ardnamurchan is a must visit place for those looking for peace, space and tranquility - a natural, unspoiled area of the UK

Ardnamurchan Point lies at the tip of the Ardnamurchan Peninsula and is the most westerly land on the British mainland. Next stop west across the Atlantic is Nova Scotia.  Ardnamurchan Lighthouse which is 36m (118 feet) tall is a significant aid to navigation at sea and is dominant on the horizon for tens of miles.

From places like Sanna Bay you can view the Inner Hebrides of Rhum, Muck and Eigg which often look stunning on a summer's evening. Completely unspoiled beaches with small Highland crofts scattered along the shore make up the topography. This is the home of the Golden Eagle and Sea Eagle, the Stag and wild herds of red deer.

The lighthouse is an interesting place to visit on a round trip of the peninsula.  This is a great day out which can include a ferry trip and driving or cycling through many small communities like Ardgour, Strontian, Acharacle, Kilchoan and Glenuig.

Your hosts, Michael and Maxean, have been providing B&B for 18 years in Torlundy. At this time we want to assure our guests that we have implemented enhanced cleaning and sanitisation procedures and as a result been certified as "Good to Go" under the UK wide scheme to reassure guests we are doing all we can to mitigate risk and prevent COVOD-19 entering our business and home.

We have lived in Torlundy for nearly 19 years now so are very conversant with the area. We welcome you to our home nestling among Britain's highest mountains (a short distance away from Ben Nevis) and most spectacular scenery. Be prepared to spend more than a day here as there is so much to do and see no matter what weather we are having, and you will not tire of the people, culture or scenery. Many of our guests say that they wished they had stayed more than a couple of nights at our Guest House because they missed so many sights. Others return year after year and still find something new each visit. We are proud to be distinctly different to hotels, many of our guests prefer the more personal and relaxed atmosphere and genuine hospitality in a "home from home" without the formality and impersonal atmosphere many hotels have and you can expect some touches rarely found in hotels that we hope make you feel there is little else we could do for you. Perhaps the only thing you might miss is room service, but then with all there is to do why would you be in your room except to get a good night's sleep? VisitScotland have awarded Torlundy House 4 Star Gold Guest House status under their Quality Assurance Scheme and our breakfast menu holds the "Taste Our Best" award for it's use of locally produced and Scottish foods.
