One of the most evocative and romantic locations in the
whole of Scotland, this beautiful Highland
village lies at the head of Loch Shiel and is
dominated by rows of gaunt mountains on the
‘Road to the Isles’.
This is the place ‘Bonnie’ Prince Charlie arrived by boat to rally his Scottish troops and launch the second Jacobite rebellion in 1745. A 19th century monument stands beside the loch as a reminder of those stirring days.
