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

The oak staircase in the Hall is a special feature and oak floors throughout create a connecting theme; two rooms can be opened up to form a huge gathering area for dancing and entertaining. The Morning Room and the Bar (looking out on the Rose Garden) have quiet corners for reading and contemplation; alternatively puzzles, games or the music system.


Arisaig House is ideally situated for touring the Highlands and Islands. The fishing port of Mallaig 10 miles distant, by way of Morar, famous for its white sand beaches, provides the gateway to Skye and the Outer Hebrides. From Arisaig itself, boats may be taken daily to the attractive Small Isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum.

For those who wish to travel by rail from the south, there is a good service from London via Glasgow and Fort William on the West Highland line, including a nightly sleeper service. Beasdale, the local train station, just one mile away, was built for Arisaig House and is a request stop! Subject to prior arrangement, this is where guests arriving by rail are met.

Arisaig House is 32 miles from Fort William on the A830 road to Mallaig. Approx. 1.2 miles from Beasdale train station turn left into junction signposted 'Arisaig House and Cottages'.
