Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

Rhu Ach Mhor

The cottage, Rhu Ach Mhor, is situated 200 metres off the road up a sandy track, at the end of Camusdarach Beach.

It can comfortably sleep five in three bedrooms - one double, one small room with a single bed and one with bunk beds. It has a combined living room/kitchen looking out over the beach and to the islands.

It was actually made into the church in the film Local Hero - and for those who know the film they will know it really is in a superb location. It is great for kids too - although it is not fenced in and is open to the beach.

There is an open area outside the cottage with garden furniture, leading down over the burn and onto the beach and a path leading along to the less well known Refuge Beach at the back of the hill.

The cottage is furnished with a recently renovated kitchen with gas hob and electric oven, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Centrally heated throughout with a combi-boiler - so there is also instant hot water.

There is a lovely bathroom with large bath and shower.

We currently have TV and Internet access.

We provide downies, blankets and pillows - but no sheets or towels.

The cottage is around 4 miles from Arisaig, 3 from Morar and 5 from Mallaig, where there are shops, bars and restaurants. Ferries go from both Arisaig and Mallaig to the Small Isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna along with regular ferries between Armadale on Skye and Inverie on the Knoydart Peninsula.
There is a 9 hole golf course at Traigh two minutes drive along the road. Fishing and dingy hire is available on Loch Morar a couple of miles away, and there are numerous possibilities for hill-walking and nature watching on the doorstep.
