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

The Area

The area offers artists and photographers many varied and unique subjects and settings. There are numerous tracks and established paths for walkers of all abilities throughout the surrounding countryside and seashore. It is only a 10 minute walk to Prince's Beach where the remains of a vitrified fort can be found.

A 50 minute walk will take you to the hill top where the view is truly magnificent, taking in mountain, loch and sea. The panorama here extends north to the Isle of Skye and the Cuillin mountains, west to the Small Isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum, south to Ardnamurchan Point (the most westerly point of the British mainland), and east to the Roshven range of mountains, and on a clear day, Ben Nevis (Britain's highest mountain).

Red deer frequent the adjoining fields and bordering woods. Seals are a common sight along the seashore. Less frequent visitors include foxes, badgers, otters, pine martens and eagles.

There are daily sailings to the Small Isles of Eigg and Muck from Arisaig (3 miles), with frequent sightings of whales, porpoises and dolphins during these trips. From Mallaig (11 miles), a vehicle ferry runs frequently to the Isle of Skye and there are daily passenger sailings to the Small Isles of Rum and Canna, as well as the Knoydart Peninsula.

The ferry to Mull & Iona is only a 2 hour drive through beautiful scenery around Loch Moidart and Sunart and over the Morven range.

For golf enthusiasts, arguably the most scenic 9-hole course in Britain can be found at Traigh, only 5 miles from Leven House.

We are on the A830.......The Road to the Isles. Follow the signs towards Mallaig. 6 miles after the village of Lochailort, you will come to Beasdale Railway Bridge
which is the only bridge on this stretch of road with operational traffic lights. 0.7 miles after these traffic lights the Leven House is the third access on the right.
The Leven House is clearly signposted and is at the top of the private driveway. Drive over the grid and......WELCOME.
