Jutting proudly into the Atlantic, the most westerly outcrop on the British Isles, is Ardnamurchan. Once an ancient volcano, forged from molten rock, Ardnamurchan is still distinguished by its vast mountain, crater, and beguiling rock formations. Now however, the remote, peaceful peninsula is abundant with rare wildlife and home to a small, friendly community. An ideal family retreat, you’ll find plenty to see and do.
Discover spectacular mountains, glens, and ancient Atlantic woodland, encompassed by miles of beaches and unexplored coves, home to otters, eagles, pine martens, and the elusive wildcat. Sail out to sea by boat or kayak to explore the small isles and look out for whales, dolphins and sea eagles. For dramatic heights scale Ben Hiant, Ben Resipole, or Ben Nevis. Or traverse the Ardnamurchan volcano crater to get a real sense of Ardnamurchan’s epic history. Watch the sun melt behind the Hebrides, and marvel at our immense dark skies, brimming with stars and frequented by the magical Northern lights.
