The Lochaber area forms a large coastal & rural part of the Scottish West Highlands and is home to Glencoe, The Great Glen, Glen Nevis, Mallaig, Ardnamurchan & The Small Isles. The region is packed with spectacular scenery from the deepest freshwater loch, white sandy beaches, towering sea cliffs, munros & mountains.
A rich history of Clans, Uprising’s & Clearances interlaced with the scenery makes this area very special indeed.
If wildlife is your thing we have the “Big 5” Golden Eagles, Red Deer, Otters, Seals & Red Squirrels. However there is much more too, from Dolphins, Minke Whales, Basking Sharks, Porpois, Sea Eagles, Pine Martins & Puffins.


Sitting between Arisaig & Mallaig, we are less than a five minute walk to the famous Camusdarach Beach. Going towards Arisaig, there is a stunning 9 hole golf course at Traigh & Arisaig Village has a beautiful Marina with a gift shop & café.
The small fishing village of Mallaig now boasts its own stunning Marina, adjacent to the old pier with the fishing boats at their moorings, gift shops & restaurants.
