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.

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.
