Portuairk is a tiny crofting township on the Ardnamurchan peninsula in a breathtakingly beautiful location on the most westerly edge of the UK. Many of the crofts have been converted in recent years to offer snug and cosy holiday cottages. Portuairk is an area for walkers and lovers of wild coastal scenery splashed with colour, courtesy of the abundant heather and wild flowers. For lovers of deserted beaches, Sanna Bay, a gleaming white stretch of sand likely to sit high on any guide to ‘Undiscovered Scotland’ locations, is just a mile away.

Portairuk is a place for simple healthy holidays, walking, swimming in clear blue seas and picnics in stunning locations. Take a stroll out to the Ardnamurchan Lighthouse which has a welcoming coffee shop and visitors centre.
For a more challenging walk then an ascent of Ben Hiant will sit high on any holiday bucket list for the West Coast of Scotland. It is a 500m climb to the top where walkers are rewarded with sweeping views across the waters to the Islands of Skye, Mull, Coill, Eiggh, Rum and Tiree. Take a ferry across to Tobermory on the Isle of Mull and either explore the Island or hop on other ferries to explore Staffa and Canna.
Wild nights out in Portuairk have yet to be invented. Happy gatherings in the village’s two pubs are much more likely. The Kilchoan Hotel is first to welcome travelers entering the village while the Sonachan Hotel will be found on the way to the lighthouse. Both offer a warm welcoming atmosphere and good food. Off the beaten track Portuair may be but the area and its holiday cottages are well worth the journey to this beautiful part of Scotland
