The Experience

Another stunning West Coast setting with Loch Sunart at the end of the garden and Glas Bheinn rising beyond. Kilcamb – a barracks during the Jacobite uprising – is a perfect base. There’s a smart drawing room with an open fire, an elegant dining room for super food, a cool little brasserie for a spot of lunch, then a handful of deeply indulging rooms. A 12-acre garden rolls down to the water, where you might spot otters and seals. Ducks and geese fly overhead, if you’re lucky you’ll see eagles. Back inside, you’ll find a whisky bar that does a good line in gin, then driftwood lamps, fresh flowers, good books and local art. You can eat in the restaurant or the brasserie, either a five-course tasting menu or something simpler, perhaps hand-dived scallops, Highland lamb, raspberry bavarois with champagne sorbet. Bedrooms have a country-house feel, some with a contemporary twist. You’ll find warm colours, smart fabrics and excellent beds. One has a balcony, most have the view, all have spotless bathrooms, some with separate showers. Don’t miss Ardnamurchan or Sanna Bay at the end of the road.

Superb small country house hotel. Owners Sally and David and their team are warm and welcoming. Two sitting rooms boast wood fires and are the perfect antidote to chilly walks. The food is ambitious and worthy of its three rosettes. Be forewarned though: you May have to wait for room on the car ferry, so allow time if you’re catching a plane.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from David & Sally Ruthven-Fox

  • Ardnamurchan Point – the most westerly point in mainland Britain – is at the end of the road. Together with Sanna Beach-one of the most amazing beaches in Scotland
  • Island of Mull and Iona. Mull is famous for its picturesque fishing village of Tobermory with its brightly painted houses and famous distillery. Iona is a small island off Mull famous for its Abbey and early links to Christianity.
  • The Jacobite Steam Train. Voted the worlds most scenic rail journey 2013. Simply a must for every visitor.
  • Puffins on Staffa. Take a boat trip to the island of Staffa to see the famous "Fingals Cave" and the delightful Puffin Colony.
  • Ben Nevis. Scotlands tallest and most beautiful mountain is just a short drive from Kilcamb Lodge.Those walkers and climbers amongst you can take on the challenge and for the less energetic the cable car to the Nevis range makes a welcome alternative.
