Places to Visit

Ben Nevis from ClunesBen Nevis

The highest mountain in the British Isles, Ben Nevis is located just behind Fort William. Park at the Visitors’ Centre in Glen Nevis & take the mountain track to the top. The summit is 4,408ft (1,344m) above sea level. You will need stamina & the right clothing. On a clear day, the views are fantastic.

West Highland Line

Scotland’s wild & wonderful west coast is yours to enjoy when you take a trip on the stunningly picturesque West Highland Line. From May until October, a steam hauled daily return service known as ‘The Jacobite’ operates between Fort William & Mallaig (must be booked 3 months in advance).

Ardnamurchan pointArdnamurchan Point & Lighthouse

At the most westerly point of the British mainland, Ardnamurchan Lighthouse has been guiding ships safely since 1849. The former keepers’ cottages and outbuildings are now operated as a visitor centre.

Lost Valley Walk, Glen Coe

Used as a hideout during the Glen Coe Massacre, the Lost Valley is a lovely walk. Park in the car park just west of the Glen Coe gorge, descend into the valley & cross the wooden bridge. Take the well-constructed path into the Lost Valley & be amazed by the space. Bidean Nam Bian is the tall mountain at the back (highest mountain in Argyll).

Silver sandsSanna Sands

Just north of Ardnamurchan Point & accessible from Kilchoan, head towards Sanna for a beautiful walk along crisp white sands with the islands of Rum, Eeig and Skye as an amazing backdrop!

Glenfinnan Viaduct & Jacobite Memorial

This iconic railway viaduct on the West Highland Line in Glenfinnan and made popular by the Harry Potter films (think flying Morris Minors!), is located at the top of Glen Shiel, overlooking the beautiful Loch and the Jacobite Memorial. N.T.S. operate a lovely coffee shop/Visitor Centre with a lookout walk to a hill just behind – fantastic views.

Silver Sands of Morar

The silver sands of Morar are a celebrated series of beautiful white beaches that pepper the coastline from Arisaig to Morar and offer spectacular views of the small isles. Popular with walkers, the beaches – including ‘The Local Hero’ beach, can be enjoyed individually or as a trail.

 

Loch Shiel Cruises

Distillery Visit

Ardnamurchan Distillery (est. 1825) and Ben Nevis Distillery (est. 2014) are both worth a visit if you are fascinated by this iconic Scottish drink. For the Ardnamurchan distillery, you can combine this with the lighthouse and also Sanna Sands.

Glen NevisInchree Waterfalls

From our doorstep at the Corran Bunkhouse, walk down the pavement next the A82 in the direction of Onich. Take the left turn after 300m signed ‘Inchree’. Follow the road to the end & then follow the signs to the beautiful waterfall

Corran Ferry & Ardgour Lochans’ Walk

Walk from our doorstep at the Corran Bunkhouse. Cross the ferry by foot for free. Walk 300m north on the Ardgour side & admire the impressive views of Ben Nevis. Walk just after the Church of Scotland and take the Lochans’ Walk that goes in a semi-circle behind Ardgour. It takes two hours to get back to the ferry. Pop in to the Ardgour Inn for a drink before returning by the ferry.

An Steall Falls & the Nevis Gorge

One of the best short walks in Scotland and a good sample of the highlands. The path starts at the road head at Glen Nevis & passes through the dramatic Nevis Gorge, leading to the awesome An Steall Falls. The falls have a single drop of 390ft (120m). Try the ‘bridge’ across the river if you dare!
