Day trips further afield
There are many wonderful things to see and do within an easy day trip from Ardtornish. You can scale the heights of the UK’s tallest mountain – Ben Nevis – at Fort William, you can visit the mainland’s most westerly point at Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, you can hop on a ferry over the sea to Skye from Mallaig or you can marvel at the majesty of the dramatic Glen Coe. The opportunities are endless and you’ll definitely not be short of choice!
Oban is a great option – accessible via Mull or by road via Corran Ferry and around by Ballachulish. The ferry is more direct but the road option is quicker, at around two hours from Ardtornish. Oban is a bustling harbour town and provides great opportunities for shopping and stocking up on larder essentials. We recommend taking a stroll along the harbour front and making a visit to the Oban Chocolate Company – their hand made chocolates are delicious and their cafe makes a delightful stopping point for coffee and cake. Slightly further on from Oban at Seil, you can take the famous “Bridge over the Atlantic” en route to the pretty village of Easdale, or for something to keep the children entertained the Sea Life Centre at Barcaldine is always a good day out.
