Visit Acharacle and Mingarry in Ardnamurchan

Acharacle lies on the shore of fresh water Loch Shiel, but is also quite near the sea.

Acharacle is a lovely village.  The name comes from the Gaelic Ath Thorguil or Torquil's ford, following a battle in 1120 at a nearby ford across the River Sheil between the Celtic-Norse warrior Somerled and the Norse invader Torquil. Here, Torquil was killed in the battle and his followers ousted from the area.

The village lies on the western end of Loch Sheil and is surrounded by beautiful scenery making it a popular holiday destination for hill climbers and naturalists. It has, among other resources, a small primary school with around 60 pupils, a hotel, motor garage, bakers, fish and chip shop, and a grocery store as well as a dental surgery.

Take a day trip around ardnamurchan via the Corran Ferry from Fort William or take a left at Lochailort on the Road to the Isles.
