Eigg and Rhum from Ardnamurchan

Visit Ardnamurchan

Ardnamurchan, the most westerly land of the British Isles, a huge remote area of Scotland

West of Fort William is one of the most remote parts of the Highlands and the UK, stretching south from Loch Ailort to the Morvern Peninsula, and west to the wild and beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula. This lonely, southwestern corner features a dramatic landscape of rugged mountains, desolate moorland and near-deserted glens, fringed by a coastline of sparkling white beaches and clear turquoise seas with wonderful views across to the isles of Mull and Skye. This is one of the least-populated areas in Britain, mainly due to the legacy of the Highland Clearances in the mid-19th century, when whole communities were evicted by landlords in favour of more profitable sheep.

With so few people around, this is an area noted for its wildlife, with a huge variety of birds and animals, such as deer, pine martens, wildcats and eagles. If you have both the time and the energy, it's worth exploring on foot. There's a series of footpaths throughout the area, particularly around Ardnamurchan.

There are lots of places to stay surrounded by beautiful scenery - spend a night or two in Strontian village and explore the area each day. The nearby ancient oak woods are preserved for the future and well worth a visit to see how charcoal was made and exported from this remote area.
