The Area

Glencairn is situated in one of the most stunning areas of Scotland. Pebbly, sandy, golden or even silver there is a beach to suit everyone the nearest, Camusdarach, being just seven minutes walk away.

Take out a kayak or canoe and paddle to remote sandy coves, sneaking up on the seals and otters that abound in the waters. How about a boat  to the islands – Rum, Eigg, Muck and Skye all easily reached  from either Arisaig or Mallaig or a trip to Knoydart only accessible by boat and foot.

Walkers can take anything from a twenty minute amble to a full days trek all in glorious scenery.

The Jacobite steam train (now known by children of all ages as the Harry Potter Train) runs daily trips from Mallaig to Fort William .

Visit Arisaig and learn about the area and its history

Take a ride out to Moidart and visit Castle Tioram near Acharacle before exploring the Ardnamurchan peninsula.

Mountain biking, golf, fishing, watching the local wildlife, whale spotting or just lazing around what’s not to love about this most wonderful part of the world.


Situated on the Road To The Isles we are  surrounded by some of the most beautiful beaches in Scotland.  The Silver Sands of Morar are a series of stunning beaches stretching from Arisaig Bay to Morar with spectacular views out to the small isles, Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna and Skye.

Camusdarach beach (“Bens Beach” of Local Hero fame) is just 10 minutes walk from Glerncairn whilst a mile further on towards Mallaig are the Silver Sands at the Estuary  of the River Morar and approximately a mile from Glencairn towards Arisaig is the beach at Traigh adjoining the most westerly golf course on mainland UK with its stunning views of Skye, Rum and Eigg.
