Our stunning location can be reached by land or sea, as we are right by the beach on the Sound of Arisaig and on a small ‘no through road’. It’s quiet, peaceful and a wonderful place to recharge your batteries and reconnect with nature.
Glenuig Inn is the great base for escaping, relaxing, getting outdoors, losing yourself, finding yourself, walking to white sandy beaches, scrambling around rocky coastlines, paddling to islands, bird watching, otter spotting and so much more . . .
We are 8 miles from the railway station at Lochailort, so walkers and cyclists can work up an appetite! The Caledonian Sleeper from London to Fort William links to the train service which follows The Road to the Isles.
Lochailort is a request stop with no facilities, but this part of the West Highland journey is purely magical including passing by Loch Shiel at Glenfinnan and over the viaduct made famous by the Harry Potter films ! In fact the Jacobite Steam train (otherwise known as Hogwarts Express), runs in the summer months for a truly authentic experience although booking is essential.
There are also bus services from Fort William and Mallaig via Lochailort.
If you are travelling by water, then head for 56°50’N 05°49W (Glenuig Bay) being careful of the rocks lurking below the high tideline in the entrance to the small bay on the northern side. We have visitor yacht moorings clearly marked by yellow buoys and Glenuig Inn, and there is a public slipway providing easy access for yachts, dive boats, dinghies, sea-kayaks and fishing boats at almost all states of the tide. It is a short walk and clearly visible from the Inn.
Sea-kayakers will also appreciate being able to glide up onto the grass outside the Inn at high tide from where it is only 30 paces to the bar (enough to get the blood flowing into the legs again!).
We are located on the road north / south from Mull to Skye so using Calmac ferries it is possible to go from Oban to Mull then onwards from Tobermory to Kilchoan (near to the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse) stay with us for a day or two then travel to Mallaig to pick up a ferry to The Small Isles ( Eigg, Rum, Muck or Canna), Skye or the Western Isles ( the outer Hebrides) . . . discover your adventure.
If you are travelling from further afield, we are a 45 minute drive from Fort William along the A830, the Road to the Isles, turning left at Lochailort for the last 8 miles along the coast.
Inverness Airport is also an option as it has flights to and from London, Bristol and Amsterdam. Once there, we are a 2-3 hour drive along The Great Glen by the side of Loch Ness before travelling west from Fort William along the Road to the Isles.
