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

Roshven Chalets

Roshven Chalets are on the shores of Loch Ailort, a sea loch that opens into the Sound of Arisaig. The highest hill for quite a distance - Roisbheinn - rises steeply out of the loch at the back of the farm to just under 3000 feet. For the adventurous, the views from the top are almost too spectacular to describe.

We are in an excellent position for those who want to tour Lochaber and even further afield - whether it is a boat trip to Skye and the Small Isles, a ride on the steam train or just a walk in the hills. There is a wealth of history in Moidart, not least the associations with Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobite movement; and with all the natural flora and fauna you will run out of time to see and do it all.

Glenuig 4 miles - Lochailort 4 miles - Fort William 31 miles

We offer a choice of 5 chalets at Roshven.

Situated only one field away from the shore of Lochailort.

There is a small beach and the loch is safe for bathing and boats.

For children it is a wild and natural playground well away from road traffic.

The chalets all look onto the loch, each one on a slightly different aspect.

Except for colour schemes, the A-frame design chalets are all the same. The accommodation in each chalet comprises:

1 double bedroom

1 twin bedroom

Outdoor activities

Loch Ailort and the Sound of Arisaig are on your doorstep - ideal for sailing and sea fishing, so if you have a boat, do bring it. Boats can also be hired on Loch Shiel, 10 miles from here.

At Roshven, you can fish for brown trout in the burn (mountain stream) near the chalet, or from the rocks on the shores of Loch Ailort for cuddies and occasionally mackerel.

There is a 9-hole course at Arisaig (15 miles away) and an 18-hole course at Fort William.
