Local information

  • Doirlinn House is situated in the village of Kilchoan towards the western end of the Ardnamurchan peninsula, the most westerly point on the British mainland. The area has some of the most spectacular coastal scenery in Scotland and includes rugged mountains, sea lochs and miles of coastline and sandy beaches.
  • The Ardnamurchan peninsula offers a wealth of activities for the outdoor enthusiast. The landscape is ideal for hill and coastal walking, with magnificent walks to the summit of Ben Hiant, the highest point on the peninsula. Other places of interest are the golden sands of Sanna Bay, the former crofting hamlet of Portuairk, the Ardnamurchan Point lighthouse, Mingary Castle dating back to the Spanish Armada and Kilchoan Old Kirk, which reputedly dates from the 12th/13th century.
  • The area is noted for being very unspoilt and undisturbed, and offers opportunities for stalking and fishing. Ardnamurchan is also home to a diverse range of wildlife, from golden eagles, otters and wildcat to whales and dolphins.
