Scotland – Part 2 ….. Ardnamurchan, sadly just passing through
After a week’s stay on the Isle of Mull we took the CalMac ferry from Tobermory to Kilchoan on the Ardnamurchan peninsular. Arguably one of the most remote peninsulas on the west coast of Scotland. On leaving Kilchoan and before driving to Morar, we decided to head north west and take a relativelyshort detour along a single track road to visit the lovely beaches of Sanna Bay. An absolutely stunning location. The lighthouse at Ardnamurchan Point was our next port of call, as we had to say we had been to the most westerly point of the British mainland.
Sadly we were only passing through Ardnamurchan and we only scratched the surface of this rather special area of Scotland.
In Part 3 of this short series on Scotland, I will be sharing some images taken during our stay at Morar, which lies to the south of Mallaig.
The highlight of this second week being the beautiful sands at Camusdarach, famous for being one of the principal locations used in the 1983 film ‘Local Hero’. To whet your appetite here is an image from that location.

Lonely but lovely scenes and the view from the ferry is stunning. I loved “Local Hero” and could understand Burt Lancaster and Riegert for wanting to stay there. I wonder if the telephone company gives a discount on trans-Atlantic calls from that booth?
Thanks Robert. “Local Hero” is an all time favourite film of mine, not to mention the wonderful musical score by Mark Knopfler. I think you will enjoy my next post which features many more images from the films location.
