KnoydartLoch Hourn and Barisdale Bay
Knoydart is the most famous of the "wilderness" destinations in Scotland that can be reached by ferry from Mallaig to Inverie across Loch Nevis. It cannot be reached by road. The coastline is dramatic and the hill walking considered to be as good as can be found anywhere. The Knoydart foundation runs the majority of the estate that is designated as a National Scenic Area providing accomodation and a ranger service. Boats can be hired in Inverie. The Old Forge Pub is the only option for catering and do not expect your mobile phone to work!
Knoydart is part of mainland Scotland but is not accessible by road. Effectively an island it has some of Scotlands finest peaks. Access by boat is possible from Mallaig. However the hillwalking in Knoydart is well worth the effort to get there as there are a variety of walks from mountains tops to beautiful coastal paths and drovers tracks. The finest walk on Knoydart is to Ladhar Bheinn and Coire Dhorrcail, but there are many others including Sgurr na Ciche, Meall Buidhe, and Luinne Bheinn, all Munroes (over 3000ft). Or the tracks and pony paths of Mam Barisdale, Mam Li and Glen Meadail, as well as the little known track to the remains of an old mica mine, high above the shores of Loch Nevis.
