Rocking up to Rockpool House
It’s time for our regular trip to Ardnamurchan, but first we had to beat Storm Babet, which was raging down the east coast. The drive up wasn’t pleasant, but we made it ok to Jodie and Simon’s place in Inverroy for a stopover, before heading to Resipole.
The Corran Ferry has been out of action for months, so the drive to Rockpool House Apartment took 40 minutes longer, but with the advantage of travelling along one of our favourite routes from Fort Willam, via Glenfinnan and then towards Glen Uig. We stopped before reaching Acharacle to allow Alison to walk Ralf along the Princes Walk, much to his delight.
The apartment is spectacular with views across Loch Sunart to Movern. Have a look here for more info: Rockpool House
Steven and Lynne are terrific hosts – the apartment has everything you could need with lots of extra touches to make your stay enjoyable. We’d have no problem recommending a stay here to anyone.
We’ve spent the week exploring some new places and revisiting some of our favourite parts of Ardnamurchan – here are a few photos to give a flavour of this fantastic part of the UK.
We managed to fit a meal in at the Kilcamb Lodge Hotel – the food was fine, but as we were the only dinner guests, there was a distinct lack of atmosphere.
On Friday, our daughter Jodie and her husband Simon, met us at Glenuig to celebrate her birthday. They’re braver than us because they went swimming in the bay – rather them than me. .
That’s it for Ardnamurchan, (hopefully the Ferry will be working again) but check back soon as we’re off to Northumberland for a week, so there’ll be another Blog of our travels.
