Town Information

The ancient crofting village of Acharacle is found on the western end of Loch Shiel and is surrounded by breathtaking scenery, making it a popular holiday destination for hill climbers and outdoor enthusiasts. It has, amongst other resources, a bakery, fish and chip shop, cafe and a grocery shop / post office. It is a main centre for deer stalking on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, and supports salmon and trout fishing in Loch Shiel and sea fishing from Loch Sunart. Recently, a new distillery has been built close to the village. The Ardnamurchan Distillery and Visitor Centre sells a wide range of limited edition whiskies, whisky publications, exclusive clothing and locally hand-crafted items and provides distillery tours. The Ardnamurchan Natural History Centre comprises an eco-friendly shop, cafe and exhibition centre. There are a range of exhibits to showcase the landscape, geology, and flora and fauna of the area. At the nearby Dorlin beach, perched atop a rocky promontory in the middle of nearby Loch Moidart, lie the ruins of Castle Tioram, one of Scotlands most atmospheric historic monuments. You can reach the castle via a sandy causeway.
