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

Arisaig Hotel

The Arisaig Hotel is an old coaching inn, built in around 1720. Situated in the village, it looks out over the bay and Marina and out across the water to the islands of Eigg and Rum.
The hotel has 13 bedrooms, all with en suite facilities and most with sea views. Seven double, three twin, one single and two family rooms, which sleep two adults and two children, are available, and are all bookable online via our website.

Food & Drink

Our mouth-watering, good value meals can be taken in the Crofter’s Bar, the Lounge Bar or, in summer, in the Dining Room, depending how you feel. If it’s sunny you can soak up the rays and admire the views from the deck. If it's cold you can curl up in front of the fire in the Drawing Room.
Lunches and dinners, teas and coffees with home baking are served daily to residents and non-residents. Our chefs prepare all the food on site, using fresh local produce where possible, and create some real treats!
After dinner you can join the fun in the Crofter’s Bar, have a game of Pool, or relax in the Drawing Room.
Children are welcome in all areas. Younger children will be happily occupied for an hour or so in the Playroom.
Look out to see if we have any “Special” nights on – curry night, tapas night, music night, free pool night etc. Friday night is usually music night in the Crofter’s Bar, so bring an instrument if you have one and join in.

Outdoor Activities

The Hotel attracts a wide range of users from locals in the bar and restaurant to families, golfers, walkers, kayakers, visiting “yachties” and cyclists – if you’re not mentioned please consider yourself included!

The Arisaig Sea Kayak Centre is based right here at the hotel, so if you fancy a day (or more) out on the water while you're here, bring suitable clothing and arrange a trip. They have a good range of boats, including single and double sea kayaks, open canoes and single and double sit-on-top kayaks which are great if you just want to potter about the bay with the family. If you already have reasonable experience you can enquire about hiring boats and kit for your own use.

We also offer bike hire - book your bike through West Coast Cycles and pick up and drop off the bikes at the hotel.


The hotel is situated conveniently for all local amenities, such as the General Store, Marina, Post Office, Café and the Land, Sea and Island Centre. There is free off road parking. Wi-Fi is available free of charge throughout the hotel.

Visit the hotel website and our Facebook page to see what's going on, for more information, to check prices and to see any deals and packages we may have on offer.

If you would like to make an enquiry or reservation please call our reservations team on 01687 450 210 or book online on our website.

Josh, Sophie and the staff look forward to welcoming you at The Arisaig Hotel soon.
