Ardnamurchan Distillery

The Ardnamurchan Distillery opened in July 2014 to begin the process of producing what will eventually become world-class single malts. The distillery sits on the shores of Loch Sunart, in what has to be one of the most spectacular locations of any distillery in the country.


Staffa Trips

The Isle of Staffa is a beautiful uninhabited island, famous for its dramatic basalt columns, sea caves and bird life. Over the years it has captivated thousands of people including Queen Victoria, Walter Scott and Jules Verne.

Fingals Cave is always splendid and atmospheric with its basalt columns formed during volcanic activity 59 million years ago. Puffins can be seen ashore in season as well as shags, oystercatchers and black guillemots. If you’re lucky you might see otters, porpoise, dolphins, even a basking shark or whale!


The Jacobite

“The greatest railway journey in the world”

Starting near Ben Nevis, this unmissable railway journey aboard the famous Jacobite Steam Train takes you on an unforgettable 84 mile round trip through some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable.  Passing through several beautiful West coast villages and silver sand beaches used in “The Highlander” and “Local Hero” movies it meanders it’s way from Fort William to Mallaig, crossing the 21 arched Glenfinnan Viaduct, used in the Harry Potter films.

A stop at Glenfinnan allows you to stretch your legs or visit the fascinating West Highland Railway Museum before continuing your journey.  Upon arrival in Mallaig, you will have time to explore this gorgeous fishing port and ferry terminal, with plenty of shops and a choice of eateries for lunch before your return journey.
