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.

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.

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.
