The Ardnamurchan Peninsula region

A diversified landscape with rocky beaches, breathtaking white sands and spectacular mountainous regions. There is an abundance of wildlife on both land and water to attract your interest.

Lochaber has both European and Global Geopark status and many geological features of importance can be seen - ranging from a deeply eroded volcano on Rum in the west, to the amazing Parallel Roads of Glen Roy in the east.

There is much deep historical interest throughout the region from Bonnie Prince Charlie raising his standard at Glenfinnan, the Appin Murder to the Glencoe Massacre. Many castles can also be visited.

Fort William enjoys a relatively mind, temperate climate, one heavily influenced by the Gulf Stream and the Atlantic Ocean - not forgetting about the very local micro-climates created by the high mountainous terrain that provides Lochaber with this beautiful scenery.

Ardnamurchan Lighthouse is the most westerly point on the British Mainland and on a clear day you will benefit from having 360 degree panoramic view of the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

Ardnamurchan Peninsula

Fort William is the Outdoor Capital of the UK boasting diverse activities locally and nearby such as extreme mountain biking, ski-ing, snowboarding, hill walking, ice climbing, kayaking, golfing, quad biking, canyoning, cycling, fishing, stalking, clay pigeon shooting, horse riding, loch cruises, whale watching, steam train trips. There are local traditional Scottish Highland Games held during summer months which are a must to visit.

"A little slice of tranquility tucked away in Salen Bay"

We travelled to Tigh Na Creagan with a large group of extended family, and it proved to be an excellent base for exploring the Ardnamurchan peninsula. We were looking for a cottage that was remote, yet accessible, and would provide enough space for a large group to spend a week comfortably, and we were not disappointed.

The house sits in its own extensive garden overlooking the jetty in Salen Bay, and has nice views of the bay and the hills surrounding Loch Sunart. Although the house is accessible by road, the grounds are large enough to make the property feel secluded and private.

The jetty provided us with a convenient starting point for a memorable boat trip to Tobermory where we observed porpoise, dolphins, seals an a whole host of birds. The road behind the house was quiet and facilitated early morning runs to Laga, as well as being a starting point for an excellent day trip hitch-hiking to Sanna, which hosts one of Europe's most remote and beautiful wild beaches.

Ardnamurchan is a beautiful part of the highlands, and Tigh Na Creagan is perfectly situated for exploring it. The house also provides the perfect environment to simply eat, relax and enjoy the views.

"A little piece of heaven"

Fantastic setting with a warm and friendly welcome from the owners.They had thought of everything right down to fresh flowers, fruit,and a lovely freshly made cake.The house was warm and has a real friendly feel about it.In our party there were 4 adults 3 teenagers and 2 eight year old girls oh and not forgetting the family dog Jazz.There was plenty of space for us all and loads for the kids and adults to do.
Within easy reach was Fort William (Morrisons supermarket) fantastic beaches,and breath taking views around every bend.Going back August 2012 and cannot wait.
