Lochaber is an area of the Scottish Highlands covering almost 5,000 km2 with very different and unique areas within it each with its own special attraction. These areas are Glen Coe & Loch Leven, Fort William & Glen Nevis, The Great Glen, The Road to the Isles and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula.
The area is great for outdoor enthusiasts, has stunning scenery and an abundance of wildlife. Ideal for those who want to climb a mountain, go skiing, try indoor ice climbing, mountain biking, sailing & kayaking, watersports, wildlife boat trips or go for long walks on unbelievably scenic routes. Try going for a ride on the Jacobite Steam Train on the road to the isles or take a ferry to one of the small islands. On top of all this there is intriguing history to be discovered and delicious seafood.
Ardnamurchan is one of the most remote areas of mainland Scotland. It has breath-taking scenery, varied wildlife, and wonderful fresh sea air. It’s a fantastic place to experience unspoilt Scottish wilderness. A trip there is a perfect way to escape from modern life. Although strictly speaking the name Ardnamurchan refers only to the peninsula, it has come to be used as a term for the lands around it as well, including the districts of Morvern, Sunart, Ardgour, and Moidart. These generally contain very small towns and villages.
