We visited the day a storm was due in. It was dry but storm force winds, this didn’t distract from the beautiful scenery but added a more natural beauty to it. It was nice to read about the lighthouse, as it was “wintertime” we couldn’t...More

A longer drive out than I expected but so worth it the scenery on route was fab. The lighthouse unfortunately was closed for repairs but the views were amazing even though the sea was somewhat rough. Visit to the gift shop/tea rooms. Some lovely gifts...More

The lighthouse is presently closed for renovations but the visitor center is still open as is the coffee shop and delicious pastries and cakes. This is a great lookout point from which to view the Sound and Island of Mull on a clear day.

There are better views in the area, so I'd only come here if you're near. The tower is closed at the moment which may not help. Gift shop ok, cafe on site too. The rest of the area is amazing, so include this as part...More

This is one of the best whale-watching spots in the UK, believe me. You need a flat-calm day (which is actually quite common), ideally with enough wind to keep the midges off, and from May-September you can get some really reliable sightings of some great...More

The Ardnamurchan Lighthouse was built on the westernmost point of mainland Britain in 1869 by Alan Stephenson, another of that great family of Scottish engineers. Stephenson seem to have designed nearly all of Scotland's lighthouses. The light that has guided ships along this rockbound coast...More

Did you try Google? A simple search give you the web site (I can't link it here apparently) and it then tells you the web site to try for booking! (again I'm not allowed to show it!)
