Description

Holiday cottage at Arisaig: You will find everything you need for a relaxing break. After a day out on the sea or loch, walking in the hills or playing golf on the nearby 9 hole course at Traigh you can return to Achnaskia for a relaxing sauna or finish off the day with a game of pool. It’s a short walk to the beach and there’s a volleyball net and swings and a slide for smaller children. For more information, prices and availability visit our own website achnaskiacroft.co.uk

Washed by the Gulf Stream the area is mild and verdant, with rich and varied wildlife. On your visit you may see pine marten, otter, minke whale, basking shark, dolphin, shearwaters, heron, geese, oystercatchers, wild orchids in profusion. There are more sandy beaches here than anywhere in Scotland, with hidden bays all to yourself. The waters around Arisaig Bay are sheltered and offer excellent kayaking. Kayaks and canoes are available for hire. Free Wi-Fi.

Arisaig Village has a Post Office, general store, harbour with day trips to the Small Isles, hotel, restaurant, visitor centre, gift shop and railway station - with a steam train running in summer. The fishing village of Mallaig, with ferries to Skye, is 7 miles away.

The only danger is that once you arrive you won’t want to leave!

Directions

Take the A830 from Fort William towards Mallaig. The road is slow in places; the journey should take about 45 minutes. On reaching Arisaig you will find a choice of roads now that the new road bypasses the village. You can continue on the new road to the second turn-off, which is sign-posted to Ach na skia Croft or you can turn off and go through the village. Once through the village, turn first left and then left again, on the coast road. The road rises up away from the sea and past the R.C. church on the left. After a few more bends and the second left turn the road drops down towards the sea again. Our own house, Sgiath House, is on the right before the bend at the Cnoc na Faire hotel (on the left). To reach the properties continue down and round the sharp right hand bend. Distance from village is about a mile.
If you are coming from Mallaig on the new road you will find us sign-posted at the first turn-off after Morar, to the right.

Area description

The village of Arisaig (the Safe Place) is centred on the sheltered shore of Loch nan Ceall (Loch of the Cells) on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands, nestled at the base of rocky Creag Mhor, the Sgurr an t’Sasunnaich (peak of the Englishman) and the Sgurr an Albanaich (peak of the Scotsman). The scenery is stunning. The coastline is dotted with sandy beaches with views to the mountains on the islands of Skye and Rum and the hills inland. The area is great for lovers of nature and wildlife. Sea kayakers can get a close up view of the marine wildlife - otters, seals, basking shark, minke whale and a huge variety of sea birds including the white tailed sea eagle, whilst walkers are spoilt for choice. Nearby loch Morar, the deepest freshwater loch in Europe, has its own monster, Morag (allegedly!)In summer the “Jacobite” steam engine pulls a special passenger train from Fort William to Mallaig daily. For more information see the arisaig.uk.com website or our own website.
