There are no roads to our wilderness location at Ardintigh Bay, Loch Nevis; The Highland Outdoor Centre/Loch Nevis Bunkhouse is accessible only by boat from Mallaig or on foot by walking along side Loch Morar. Mallaig and Morar in the West Highlands are easily reached by road and rail via the A830 along the scenic ‘Road to the Isles’ or by railway on the spectacular West Highland Line which stops at Morar and terminates 2 miles further along the line at Mallaig.
