Beautiful Scenery to Admire
Loch Sunart, a long, narrow inlet from the Atlantic Ocean, via the Sound of Mull, benefits from the warm west coast sea temperatures influenced by the Gulf Stream. The resulting oceanic microclimate makes the area surrounding the loch one of the only places in Europe where temperate rainforest still exists, offering an exceptionally rich habitat for a multitude of varied wildlife.
The area has an interesting history that can be witnessed as you explore even the most secluded of valleys. Hundreds of abandoned ruined buildings are scattered across this vast expanse of land, evidence of settlements long since vacated, possibly because of their extremely rural nature and the move to cars, rather than boats, as a primary mode of transport.
Currently the largest settlement in the area, Strontian, has a population of approximately 400, yet it has a heritage that rivals most large cities. This attractive village near the head of Loch Sunart has an element of the periodic table named after it.
Strontium was first found in the lead mines just north of the settlement in 1790 and it was these mines that produced most of the lead shot which was used in the Napoleonic wars. Whether you're looking for your next Scottish adventure or just somewhere to relax and unwind, Loch Sunart is one hidden gem which is well worth a visit.
The area also encompasses Ardnamurchan, that wild and lovely peninsula stretching to the westernmost point of mainland Britain. Most easily reached via the Ardgour Ferry from Onich, Ardnamurchan is an escapist's paradise, with glorious hill and coastal scenery, plentiful and varied wildlife and at its most westernly point the beautiful beach at Sanna Bay.

|18-Nov-2019||South Persie House CN2 (overall)||Unique Cottages made the booking process seamless. I would highly endorse this self catering accommodation company and similarly, I would recommend this wonderful holiday house - exceedingly comfortable -great warmth, superb beds and bedding, well equipped kitchen -the latter definitely very much the hub of the house. The secure garden is not overlooked and provides a great expansive playground for the dogs. The swimming pool is a great boon for young and old alike. We would love to have a summer week here although anytime of the year has its own appeal. A particular thank you to Sharon the housekeeper who, with a touch of magic, keeps the place pristine clean. The welcome goodies were very much appreciated. An A plus experience from start to finish.|

|16-Nov-2019||Tayvulin AN8 (overall)||The house was exactly what we hoped for and met every one of our needs it was clean and warm with lots of space for us and our 3 children 15 11 and 8. We had lovely family nights toasting marshmallows and playing the wii and watched some of the DVDs on offer. We were delighted to be able to store the bikes safely in the garage. We ate at the table which could sit 8 and I had all i needed to cook simple meals. I used the washing machine and airer for drying clothes and the location was convenient and we walked down to the shops and cafes several times. Would love to stay again **|
