Glenelg and Arnisdale

Glenelg and Arnisdale

Hidden away over the high Mam Ratagan Pass with its magnificent views is the Glenelg peninsula, a peaceful haven that feels a world apart. This is a wonderful area for walkers, with both steep high mountains such as Beinn Sgritheall and softer lowland scenery around the glens and coast.

Gavin Maxwell wrote his classic Ring of Bright Water here from his little cottage at Sandaig, and today's visitors will still find an completely unspoilt area full of wildlife and interest. Glenelg itself is home to still home to the original Skye ferry which carries a few cars at a time across the Kylerhea narrows through the summer months.
