Ardnamurchan peninsula is located on the west coast coast of Scotland with many small communities scattered across the area. The biggest settlement on the peninsula is Kilchoan. Ardnamurchan is reached from the south via the Corran Ferry, or from Fort William past Loch Eil, then through to Loch Ailort and down to Ardnamurchan.

The south side of the peninsula overlooks Loch Sunart to the east and the island of Mull to the south west. The north coast overlooks the islands of Rum, Eigg and Muck (The Small isles). On a clear day the Cullins of Skye are visible.

Ardnamurchan is an unbelievably beautiful corner of Scotland overlooking the Isle of Mull and the Western Isles. Roads lead over to the white sands of Sanna and other beaches on the north and northwest of the peninsula. The clear waters around these coasts are ideal for skin diving, fishing and sailing. Westward the road goes to Portuairk before reaching Ardnamurchan lighthouse on the most westerly point of the British Mainland. Ardnamurchan offers opportunities for the fisherman, angler, birdwatcher, diver, photographer and hill walker, and a haven for those that just want to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Ardnamurchan is a wild, remote and beautiful place often accessed only by narrow single track roads.

The only significant settlement on Ardnamurchan is Kilchoan in West Ardnamurchan and the most westerly village in mainland Britain. So remote the village was accesible only by sea until 1900, when the road through Glenborradale was stretched along the peninsula.
