Find cottages in AcharacleVisit Acharacle

The ancient village of Acharacle lies at the southern end of Loch Shiel in the Ardnamuchan peninsular in the western Highlands. Surrounded by the most beautiful Highland countryside, this area is popular with naturalists, hill walkers and those who come to escape the hustle and bustle of modern living.

The village itself has a few local amenities, including a small grocery shop, cafe and traditional fish and chip shop, and you're within reach of the larger settlements of Fort William and Mallaig. Don't miss a visit to the ruined remains of Castle Tioram on the island of Eilean Tioram, the traditional seat of Clan Macdonald of Clan Ranald.

Anglers can enjoy fishing for salmon and trout in Loch Sheil and there's sea fishing at nearby Loch Sunart, fishing tuition trips are also available to book in the area. Local walks include the Singing Sands walk (around 6 miles) or the Silver Walk, which takes you along the banks of Loch Moidart from Castle Tioram. Or head for the golden sandy beaches of Dorlin (just 6km away), or Ardtoe.

During the summer months, the Acharacle Produce Markets at the Village Hall is not to be missed; you can try tempting homemade soups and locally baked goods or pick up handcrafted gifts for friends and family back home. Why not visit the local smoke house to try some delicious local smoked salmon, or take some back to your holiday cottage to whip up a delicious dinner for the family?

For accommodation please see holiday cottages in Acharacle and area for a lovely holiday in the Highlands.

The Coach House Ref: UCV

" In a land steeped in legends of the Bonnie Prince – close to Moidart’s sandy shores..."

Where a tree-lined glen opens out onto Loch Moidart and in countryside steeped with tales of Bonnie Prince Charlie, these fine properties stand upon the Kinlochmoidart Estate, within half a mile of the coast and 4 miles from the beach at Glenuig. The Scottish Baronial mansion of Kinlochmoidart House, occupies a marvellous position amidst some of Scotland’s most magnificent West Country scenery. It has been sensitively formed into three residences; two are careful conversions of an extensive service wing, while the main house (part of which is still the owners’ home) is a substantial property laid out over three floors and forming the middle portion of the building. The remaining three properties presented here are separately set in secluded locations within the vast grounds, comprising extensive shared gardens and the surrounding 2,000 acre estate grounds, which grant opportunities for excellent hill walking and fine varied fishing (fly fishing is available by arrangement). Very comfortably furnished, cosily heated and well-equipped throughout, each provides the perfect holiday retreat from which to enjoy an abundance of interests and scenic splendour with which this area is blessed at all times of the year.
Designed by William Leiper in 1884, Kinlochmoidart House is one of the finest examples of his work. It features a superb Art Movement interior – tilings, wallpapers, paint work, panelling and many other intricate architectural features have been painstakingly restored and represented, under strict architectural guidance, to return it to its former splendour. It occupies the site of a house which was once the resting place of Prince Charles Edward Stuart during the 1745 Jacobite Revolution – a connection commemorated in a nearby meadow, where seven beech trees symbolise the Seven Men of Moidart, the sum total of the army which he brought from France.
Just a short walk away from the house lies Loch Moidart, where vast expanses of sand are thrown up by the sea at low tide. At the seaward end of this beautiful inlet, sit the ancient ruins of 14th-century clan castle of Tioram (once the stronghold of the Lord of the Isles), providing a focal point for gloriously scenic views. Between nearby Loch Shiel and Loch Sunart, a trail leads through the Ariundle Oakwoods Nature Reserve – a haven for wildlife – whilst southwards, the coast is punctuated by bays of white sand excellent for fishing and shell-collecting, or admiring the views over hill, loch and sea from horse back. Fort William, gateway to Ben Nevis, is a scenic drive away, and the Western Isles, Skye and Ardnamurchan are all accessible. Sailing at Acharade, 6 miles. Golf 30 minutes’ drive. Inn at Glenuig, 4 miles. Shops 7 miles.

In a sunny and secluded location, this stone-built, Victorian coach house with its own garden offers attractive, comfortable accommodation. Large sitting/dining room with pine cladding, wood-burning stove and modern fitted kitchen area. Double bedroom (5ft bed). Bathroom with toilet. Steep open-tread stairs from sitting-room to small galleried twin bedroom with very low (6ft) ceiling (unsuitable for small children).

Otterburn Ref: SXXW

Ideally situated on the edge of Loch Sunart, this property has 4 en-suite bathrooms and wonderful loch views. It is a large, comfortable, detached holiday property and is situated in a wonderful location. Set in its own grounds, it offers peaceful country living yet is only a short 5-minute walk from the nearest shop/post office and local pub/restaurant. This location makes an excellent base for exploring the Ardnamurchan Peninsula, Mull, Skye and the Small Isles. There are fabulous walks on offer and an abundance of wildlife. Otterburn gets its name from the numerous sightings of otters that can be viewed from the property’s windows! The house is south-facing and has beautiful loch views from almost every window. Strontian is a little Highland village about 20 miles southwest of Fort William via the Ardgour ferry (a short 3-minute crossing). Loch Sunart offers good sea fishing and a charter boat is available, along with small self-drive hire boats. Strontian and the surrounding areas offer a good selection of hotels/restaurants which serve a wide variety of cuisine, including local sea food and venison. There are numerous walks and cycle routes, and it is one of the best places in Scotland to view the native wildlife, including pine martens, otters, eagles, red squirrels, deer, seals, wading birds, buzzards and rare butterflies. After leaving Strontian, the road heads west through a spectacular landscape, which alternates between the lochside and the famous Sunart Oakwoods. Visit the Stevenson lighthouse, the most westerly point on the British mainland, where there is a visitor centre and café. Visit the lovely beach at Sanna and go on a day trip to Tobermory on Mull. There are also beaches at Morar, Arisaig and Mallaig, where guests can also get a ferry to Skye and the Small Isles. Fort William can be reached in under an hour and has a leisure centre, golf course and a boat trip on Loch Linnhe.

Allt-na-Mara Ref: 2869


Ardnamurchan, the most westerly point of the British mainland, is one of the most beautiful, unspoilt areas of the Highlands. There are mountains, glens, forests, white coral sands and turquoise waters warmed by the gulf stream. The village is remote with few services, although a local hotel serves meals and there is a well-stocked convenience store with post office and petrol pumps. The detached holiday property stands in a sheltered valley approached by a rough, unmade road. The road from Corran Ferry is single track. An alternative route through Fort William, Lochailort and Moidart is 12 miles longer but offers better roads. The wildlife in the area is exceptional. Buzzards, along with sea and golden eagles dominate the skies. Red, roe, fallow and muntjac deer roam forest and moor, and the rare pine marten and Scottish wildcat have a haven here. Fishing is available locally at Loch Mudle and the local hill lochs. The Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, built in 1849, is well worth a visit. There are several stunning beaches nearby; Portuairk beach is within 1½ miles, Sanna beach is 5 miles by road, but only 1½ miles on foot. Kilmory and Achateny beaches are about 7 miles away on the north coast. Achateny has a reef, in which there are sea anemones, eels, fish and sea cucumbers. Shop 3½ miles, hotel ½ mile, beach 1 mile, Isle of Mull car ferry 4 miles.

Ground floor: Living/dining room/kitchen. 1 double bedroom. Bathroom with toilet. Open-tread stairs to first floor: 2 double bedrooms, one (4ft) with additional single.

Electric heaters and electricity included. Freesat TV. DVD and small library. Electric cooker. Microwave. Garden chairs. Parking (2 cars). Natural water supply from spring. Two pets welcome, dogs must be kept on lead (crofting country).
