Our stunning location can be reached by land or sea, as we are right by the beach, and on a small ‘no through road’. It’s quiet here and a great place to escape, relax, get outdoors, lose yourself, find yourself, walk to white sandy beaches, scramble around rocky coasts, paddle to islands, go 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 overnight train from London via Glasgow to Fort William links to the local line and junior explorers can even arrive on the Hogwarts Express!
If you are travelling by water, then head for 56°50’N 05°49W (Glenuig Bay) being careful of the rocky scenery that lurks below high tide, in the entrance to our small bay on the northern side; you don’t want to explore it too closely on the way in!
We have Visitor Yacht Moorings in Glenuig Bay and there is a public slipway that provides easy access for yachts, dive boats, dinghys, sea-kayaks and fishing boats at almost all states of the tide, being both just a short walk and visible from the Inn.
Sea-kayakers will also appreciate being able to glide up onto the grass outside the Inn at high tide (even an hour or two either side on a spring), from where it is only 50 paces to the bar (enough to get the blood flowing into the legs again!).
Should all the above not be an option, and you are not flying (you would not be the first), then you must be arriving by road. There are bus services from Fort William and Mallaig via Lochailort, unless you are driving, in which case you find us 45 minutes from Fort William along the A830 (the romantic Road to the Isles) turning left at Lochailort for the last 8 miles along the coast.
However you get here, you are welcome to share the magic of Glenuig!
