The northern part of what is traditionally known as na Garbh-Chrìochan or “the Rough Bounds”, because of its harsh terrain and remoteness, Knoydart is also referred to as “Britain’s last wilderness”. Only accessible by boat, or by a 16-mile (26 km) walk through rough country, its seven miles (11 km) of tarred road are not connected to the UK road system.

Designated as a National Scenic Area,Knoydart is popular with hill walkers, mountaineers, sailors and wildlife enthusiasts. It includes the Munros of Ladhar Bheinn (1020 m), Luinne Bheinn (939 m), Meall Buidhe (946 m) and Sgurr na Cìche (1040 m).
