Glenelg and Arnisdale: the end of your journey, the beginning of an experience.

Located on the West Coast of Scotland the Glenelg area has much to offer tourists and visitors. Stunning Highland scenery, diverse sea and wildlife, a great community AND we are "twinned" with Mars! The Glenelg area is a Mecca for walking, wildlife watching or just relaxing and getting away from the stress of work and city life. Turning off the main road at Shiel Bridge (see map) and coming in over the Mam Ratagan Pass (don’t miss the view point!) is the start of an experience that leads many visitors to return here again and again for their holidays in Glenelg Scotland.

 

Location

Glenelg bay faces across to the Isle of Skye and down the Sound of Sleat with fabulous views to the Sandaig Islands, Isle Ornsay, Rum and Eigg. (Sandaig is where author Gavin Maxwell wrote the best seller "Ring of Bright Water"). The road carries on from Glenelg to Arnisdale before ending at the tiny village of Corran and is considered by many to be one of the most scenic drives in Scotland.

Also by Glenelg is the mainland jetty for the Skye Ferry. The MV Glenachullish is a manually operated turntable ferry, a type that at one time could be seen all over Scotland. As far as we know, it is the only one still in existence and crosses the short, spectacular Kyle Rhea straits, where you may see seals, porpoise, otters or our local sea eagles feeding. A unique experience not to be missed sailing "over the sea to Skye".

 

Accommodation

The Glenelg area is blessed with an excellent selection of good quality self-catering cottages which vary in size from small properties suitable for couples to larger houses to suit families or groups. High quality rooms are available at the Glenelg Inn and there are Bed & Breakfast establishments for short breaks or just an overnight stay. (Some self catering cottages also offer short breaks, especially out of season)

 

But what about that Scottish weather?

Let’s be honest, Scotland can be fickle where the weather is concerned! While the South can be blessed with a heatwave Scotland can be suffering with wind and rain but the opposite applies too. When East winds and gales hit the rest of the country Glenelg often basks in calm sunny weather. It really does have its own micro climate and it’s often said that one sunny day on the West Coast of Scotland is worth several elsewhere. With a bit of luck you will enjoy amazing deep blue days filled with sunshine while at night the unpolluted dark skies above Glenelg produce a crystal fiesta of sparkling stars.
