Acharacle

Towns & Villages

    The ancient crafting village of Acharacle is just north of Salen at the eastern end of the Ardnamuchan Peninsula.

    Surrounded by beautiful scenery, the town is a popular holiday destination for hill climbers and naturalists. 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 Scotland’s most atmospheric historic monuments. Reached via a sandy causeway, the 13th century fortress, whose Gaelic name means dry land, was the seat of the MacDonalds of Clanranald until it was destroyed by their chief in 1715 to prevent it from falling into Hanoverian hands while he was away fighting for the Jacobites.
