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.
