Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

Ard-Choille Croft House

This traditional 100 year old croft house at Glasnacardoch has recently been extended providing a new kitchen, utility room and dining room with a modern feel whilst keeping the rest of the house as original as possible.

Accommodation comprises of 2 double and 1 single bedroom, living room and shower room. The kitchen has a ceramic hob, oven, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer plus underfloor heating.

The dining room opens out through French doors onto a decking area where you can watch the famous Harry Potter Hogwarts Express steam train pass by your door step.

For more exclusive photograph opportunities of the steam train you have the freedom to explore the hills on the croft and this also gives you spectacular views of the small isles of Eigg, Muck, Rum and Canna.

The village of Mallaig is 1 mile from the croft well within walking distance where there are an array of restaurants, pubs and shops.
There you can also embark on ferry trips to the Isle of Skye, the Small Isles and Knoydart.
