North of the Isle of Mull and west of Fort William, the Ardnamurchan Point Lighthouse is the only Egyptian style lighthouse to be found in the United Kingdom, and staying in hotels in this part of the country affords you the time and the space to explore this fantastic attraction.
This 36 metre tall, pink granite tower was erected in 1849 and provides visitors with epic panoramic views of the surrounding coastline, where they can observe marine life and look west towards the Hebridean islands on clear days.
Stay in Hotels in the Fort William and Oban Areas
Ardnamurchan Point Lighthouse is just one of the many sites that draw visitors to the Fort William region of Scotland each year, and another is the famous Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the United Kingdom and a mountain on the bucket-list of all trekkers and mountaineering fans.
Just south of Fort William sits the iconic seaside town of Oban, a ferry and fishing village that features delicious fresh seafood, as well as the famous Oban Distillery, where you can taste an aged batch of fine local Scotch Whisky.
The western coast of Scotland is a breathtaking and historical region, and using Expedia’s search tool you can find the right hotel that will act as a perfect jumping off point for the surrounding attractions and perhaps even a trip to the Outer Hebrides.
