Explore Scotland’s Wild West: Ardnamurchan in a campervan hire ScotlandPosted on: February 25, 2017
Called “The Hidden Gem of Lochaber”, far flung Ardnamurchan Peninsula, the most westerly on the British mainland, offers wild beauty with stunning views and few crowds- and the best way to explore it is in a campervan hire Scotland!
Cycling, fishing, golfing, kayaking, boat trips- there is lots for the outdoors lover to do in Ardnamurchan, or maybe you would just rather relax and enjoy the views. There are several welcoming campsites to park your campervan hire Scotland, or look for an out of the way wild camping spot. You’ll feel as if you are on the edge of the world, and in this busy day and age, that can be heaven!
For those truly looking to get away from it all, head to Sanna Bay on the tip of the peninsula in your campervan hire Scotland for one of most remote and impressive beach experiences. It’s a bit of a trek, including 30 miles of single track road. But that’s part of the charm- you’ll miss the crowds and might just have the entire beach to yourself. The journey takes you across a stunning landscape of an extinct volcano that is now covered in heather. Park your campervan hire and spend the day frolicking on the dunes and fantastic rock formations- climb to the top for breathtaking views of the Isles. Look for soaring sea eagles and playful otters- and if the weather is warm, you might not be able to resist a dip in the gorgeous turquoise waters.
Ardnamurchan’s lighthouse & Campervan Hire Scotland
Don’t miss a trip to Ardnamurchan’s lighthouse, just a short drive in your campervan hire from Corrachadh Mor, the most westerly point, not just in Scotland, but on the whole British mainland. The local fare is outstanding, from locally reared venison to produce (look for farms selling their eggs by the side of the road!) and, of course, some of the freshest seafood in Scotland. Prepare your own meals from these fresh ingredients or enjoy the lovely cafes and restaurants.
Head west….to the beautiful Ardnamurchan Peninsula of Scotland for a laid back holiday that is good for the soul!
