Ardnamurchan, Moidart, Morvern, Sunart and Ardgour form the area in and around the most westerly point of the British Mainland. It is a beautiful, remote and unspoilt place in the Scottish Highlands. The ideal place to relax and get away from it all.

    Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean on the North West Coast of Scotland, it is a land of rugged mountains, stunning coastlines, beautiful lochs, historic castles, amazing night skies, ancient woodlands and heather moorland.

    Steeped in history and Celtic legends, it remains unspoilt to this day and once visited, it is a place that will be forever in your heart.

    If you have only just discovered us, welcome to the best kept secret in the British Isles, and we can't wait to share it with you. If you are returning to this wonderful unspoilt part of Scotland, then welcome back. Either way, please do follow our Coronavirus: Visitor Charter while you are here.
