THE GLENELG AND ARNISDALE TOURIST INFORMATION GUIDE

 

 

Arnisdale, a scenic feast

 

Arnisdale

Arnisdale bay Around 10 miles onwards, after passing through Glenelg, is the small village of Arnisdale followed a half mile later by Corran, an even smaller village and the end of the road for vehicles.

Situated on the shore of Loch Hourn the majority of the properties have enviable views across to Knoydart, often described as "Britain's last wilderness". This remote area and its four Munros make Knoydart a popular “must do” for hill walkers.

 

 

James Bond and big hills

Arnisdale House As you drop down into Arnisdale, just before the Post Office, you will find one of the starting points for the walk up to the local Munro - Beinn Sgritheall (974m). This is the most direct (but difficult) track to the summit, the reward considered to be on a decent day, one of the best views in Scotland. Walk details and a map can be found at Walk Highlands.

The large white-painted hunting lodge at the end of the Arnisdale cottages is called Arnisdale House, built in 1898 by Valentine Fleming, father of Ian Fleming, author of the James Bond 007 books

 

Corran

Fishing Huts Corran When you reach the absolute end of the road, at Corran, you can park by the Ceilidh House. Head inside and you will find the walls have some great story boards with a wealth of information on the history of the villages. The Ceilidh House holds small events such as plays and also has music gigs at times.

Walk over the bridge into Corran where you will find a tiny row of cottages that end with Sheena’s Tea Hut followed by a row of old fisherman’s sheds used when fishing was a mainstay in the area before the fall of the herring industry.
