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

A Minch Adventure

We don’t focus on one activity but amalgamate a variety of experiences. A Slow adventure brings together people who enjoy sharing their sense of place with visitors by sharing traditional skills, local knowledge, storytelling and spending time together in nature. Our slow adventures have been crafted to offer unique, authentic experiences by working with carefully selected people and businesses. Below is a summary of a slow adventuring cruise with Minch Adventures.  


Keeping inshore around the environs and seascapes of the Knoydart/Glenelg Peninsulas for a slow adventuring cruise is an ideal way to explore and engage with wild open and natural places. This trip will entail a journey through breath-taking landscapes at a slower immersive pace. Creating memories through meaningful experiences, such as hauling lobster pots and investigating the sea life, learning to line fish while keeping an open eye for marine mammals. There is the possibility of a chance to visit a charming remote rustic café (The Road Ends Café) on the Knoydart peninsula which is described by previous guests as a magical place to relax. Or perhaps you would rather be cooking the catch over an open fire on a remote beach of significant historical interest. Our fresh sourced sea food catch can be cooked and eaten onboard also while tasting some of my favourite Malt whisky. This area played a big part in the Jacobite uprising which may be of interest or on the other hand listening to my sea-faring stories and tales of growing up here in this wild place will give you an insight of life in the highlands.  Our Vessel is custom built for delivering exclusive, vivid and personal experiences of the west coast of Scotland.

Grand adventure with a personal touch
Even the unpredictable weather couldn't stop us having the time of our lives with Billy from Minch Adventures. His stories, recommendations and connection with the local community and history made our trip unforgettable. Knoydart and the surrounding area truly is truly breath-taking in and on its own but having a passionate and knowledgeable local with a sense of adventure made the trip even more exceptional. I won't soon forget learning how to fish with a ball of string, seeing whales next to us or exploring the remote isle of rum and coming back with foraged mushrooms which we cooked with freshly caught langoustines and scallops. There are so many pre-packaged itineraries and holidays nowadays, but Billy went out of his way to create a more personal experience that you just don't find in many places anymore. It's definitely special and not to be missed if you're in the area.

Charter exceeded all our expectations and incredible adventure!
Four of us (two couples) from Bermuda chartered Minch Adventures through our hotel and from the outset we were very delighted. We saw wildlife, caught fish and had lunch at the most incredible 'restaurant that could have been at the end of the universe'. Would recommend this to anyone who likes boats and the water. Bill taught us a lot of the history of the area and we really enjoyed his company.
