One of the most beautiful drives you will find anywhere on the West Coast is the drive through Acharacle at the south-west corner of Loch Shiel heading northwards on the A861 until you reach the road to the Isles near Lochailort.
After you have sampled the delights of Loch Shiel and Loch Moidart, you can then head to one of the most surprising Inns that you will ever find, perched on the south side of the South of Arisaig – the Glenuig Inn.
It has been completely refurbished in the last couple of years to make it one of the most energy efficient, warm, cosy and welcoming places that you could ever expect to find in the middle of nowhere! The day I visited we were greeted by the owner Steve and made to feel incredibly welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The menu looked sensational and if I was a sea kayaker or a hill-walker I would unquestionably have booked myself in here for a hearty lunch or dinner.
Places like this simply do not survive unless their reputation brings people from miles around and Steve deserves every success.
