You can go island hopping on the fast water taxis to the Inner Hebridean isles of Rum, Canna, Muck, Eigg and Isle of Skye – boats sail daily. Knoydart is a designated national scenic area and is traditionally known as ‘Britain’s Last Wilderness’ because of its remoteness. Knoydart Hide is an excellent base to take in Knoydart’s three munros; Meall Budhie, Ladhar Bheinn and Luinne Bheinn. Or sit on the quiet secluded beaches, enjoy beach barbeques, al fresco breakfasts or mackerel fishing for supper. Climb Brockets Monument, learn about the last Scottish land raid, see the cairn for the Seven Men of Knoydart or take one of many organised ranger guided walks. Take the Jacobite Steam train on a return daytrip from Mallaig or visit the stunning Camusdarach beach featured in the film Local Hero. Go stalking, stroll our beaches, climb waterfalls or swim in the rivers. Watch otters feast at dawn and forest deer and stags on the hill at breakfast from Knoydart Hide. Whale watching for porpoise, basking shark, mike whale and seals make for an exciting day out on the water or relax in our hot tub under the night sky and watch the milky way overhead. Throw a log on the Rais woodburner and curl up together in your own retreat, you’ll find a handpicked selection of board games, films and books for a relaxing night in together. Why not arrange to be castaway for a few hours on a remote beach or sheltered spot transferred by private boat with a pre-ordered luxury seafood picnic of fresh langoustines, crab, smoked salmon and some bubbles or a hamper of your own choice for an unforgettable celebration or private moment with someone special.
Just a 5 minute walk away is the multi-award winning local pub, The Old Forge – known as one of the best (and most remote) in Scotland, with superb seafood, real ale and impromptu folk music ceilidhs.
