Out & About

Highland-20130215-00219The beaches are one of the most stunning features of the local area. On a lovely day the colours remind you of the Caribbean! The largest beach at Camusdarach was made famous in the film ‘Local Hero’.

There are so many walks for all abilities… whether a gentle stroll along a beach or for the more energetic the walk up Creag Mor behind the mast is well worth the view. Walk the 7 miles along the shore of Loch Morar to Tarbet and then catch the ferry back from Tarbet to Mallaig.

Fort William (Outdoor capital of the UK) is a 45 min drive away and is the base for climbing Ben Nevis. At Aonach Mor take the cable car up the mountain and skiing and snowboarding are available here in winter.

Highland-20130320-00302The Land, Sea and Islands centre is worth a visit in Arisaig. It is very informative of the local area and includes information about Arisaig’s wartime past.

Mallaig is a 15 min drive taking the coastal route and is the local fishing port. There are numerous restaurants and craft shops. Mallaig is the base for the Caledonian MacBrayne ferries to Skye and the Small Isles. Mallaig also has a swimming pool and gym and has regular fun hours for all the family.
