Fort William to the Ardnamurchan Peninsula - a fantastic drive and some of the best picnic spots in Scotland!
Head south on the A82 from Fort William until you get to the Corran Ferry on the right hand side.
The ferry takes you to the other side of Loch Linnhe and to the village of Ardgour. Continuing on under the dramatic slopes of Garbh Bheinn to Strontian, you have a choice of routes. A left turn takes you onto the road to Ardnamurchan and the lighthouse at the most westerly point of the British mainland. This is a wonderful drive with numerous reasons to stop and explore.
Alternatively from Salen you can continue on the circular route to Acharacle, Glenuig, Lochailort, where you join the Mallaig to Fort William road.
Turning left before Strontian takes you down to Lochaline and the Morvern peninsula. Here you can catch a car ferry to Craignure on Mull. You can also take the ferry across to Tobermory (Balamory!) on Mull from Kilchoan ferry which is a few miles before the Ardnamurchan point. Our favourite place in the world!
