Visit Salen in Ardnamurchan

Salen is a tiny community set around the shore of Loch Sunart

Salen is a tiny community set around a quiet bay by Loch Sunart, a large tidal sea-loch, on the Ardnamurchan peninsula. A picturesque spot on the road out to Ardnamurchan Point. The Salen Hotel is a good place to stop for coffee, a meal or an overnight stay. The area is very peaceful and completely rural with grazing croftland and an interesting coastline. Sometimes a sheep might wander over to an island in the bay at low water, not knowing much about tides....

You can visit Salen on a day trip around part of the peninsula visiting Ardgour, Stronian, Salen, Kilchoan and Glenuig. The road is incredible scenic and a delight for a drive through one of the most remote places in the UK. If you are "touring" please pull over regularly to allow local traffic to get past you on all those single-track, narrow and windy roads.
