Visit Ardgour in Ardnamurchan

Ardgour is a pretty village on the west shore of Loch Linnhe at Corran Narrows, and gateway to Ardnamurchan Peninsula - a totally unspoilt area

Ardgour is located by the shore of Loch Linnhe at the foot of a towering mountain corrie and is the gateway to Ardnamurchan. The name Ardgour means 'height of the goats', and you can still see feral goats in this huge, sparsely populated wilderness bordered by Loch Shiel, Loch Eil, Loch Linnhe and Loch Sunart.  

The village has a general store and PO with some bed and breakfast and self catering holiday cottages. The views across Loch Linnhe to Glencoe and Ben Nevis are quite spectacular.

Ardgour Inn is a former coaching inn and perfectly located by the ferry. There's a good day out on a bicycle to travel around Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil from any point on this lochside bike or car tour, which would include a ferry crossing to or from Ardgour. There is a passenger ferry at Treslaig opposite Fort William for an alternative way to and from Fort William.
