The Knoydart Area.

Knoydart is a peninsula in the Lochaber district on the West coast of the Scottish Highlands. Situated between Loch Nevis and Loch Hourn, the peninsula comprises approximately 55,000 acres which today is divided up amongst a number of landowners, with the largest area managed by the Knoydart Foundation (click here for more information).

 

Knoydart is cut off from the UK mainland road network, thus meaning access can only be made either by boat or by foot. The rugged and remote landscape is one of the primary attractions of the area; and with four munros and numerous corbetts within the Knoydart boundary, hillwalkers flock from far and wide to make their ascents.

Inverie is the main settlement area and is home to over half of the full time residents (currently around 120). The village holds the majority of local amenities, including the Primary School, Post Office, Community Shops, Knoydart Pottery & Tearoom and The Old Forge pub; and is where the pier is located for boat access to and from the peninsula. Along the length of the bay there are also many guesthouses - including B&B's, self catering and hostels (click here for more information).
