Arnisdale is wild, remote and everything you would want the Highlands to be. At the end of a spectacular 20 mile single track road, here you are off the tourist trail; with otters, deer and Sea Eagles for company. The village itself consists of just a handful of old fishing cottages, so here is a review of the area. In the summer (April to October), the must do is the Glenelg ferry to Skye. This is the last turntable car ferry left in the world operating and is a unique way to get across to the Isle of Skye, avoiding a good 30-40 mile detour (and the mountain pass!).
Tip: if staying for the week buy a book of 6 travel tickets for £40, otherwise it is £15 a trip for a car and 4 passengers. Look out for friendly seals and the local White Tailed eagles on the short but dramatic crossing.
Sheena's tea hut in Corran is another curiosity, selling fine baking and teas / coffee from a tumble down shed right on the sea shore. The views are amazing.
The other food option is the Glenelg inn with live music at he weekend. Check out the Corran Community hall for other live entertainment.
A car is pretty essential here and any sight seeing will involve a considerable drive, however, there is a community bus that runs as required. Phone signal is available on the hill just outside Arnisdale and in Glenelg itself, however, this place is about getting away from it all, relaxing and detaching yourself from the realities of modern day life.
