  • This is one of my favourite spots on the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The castle itself it quite small and dates back to the 12-13th century and was the seat of the Clanranald branch of Clan Donald.Great.....  more »
  • Car park just 5mins walk up the path/beach to cross over. Children loved it. Cut off at very high tide it seems, so can access most of the time.  more »
  • Stunningly beautiful with barely a soul there in the height of Summer. Probably due to not being many signs or adverts. Perfect for peace in outstanding scenery.
  • Nice walk along a short beach. Would loved to know some history about the place
