The Arisaig Hotel is an old coaching inn, built in around 1720. Situated in the village on the edge of Loch na Ceall, it looks out over the bay across the water to the islands of Eigg and Rum. The Arisaig Hotel has 13 bedrooms, all with en suite facilities and most with sea views. Seven double, three twin, one single and two family rooms are available. You can either eat in The Crofter's Bar, a comfortable Lounge Bar or in the dining rooms at weekends. The Crofter's Bar has a pool table and hosts live music some weekends and is home to a lively social scene.
Ben Resipole, a Corbett, is the highest peak on the Ardnamurchan, and affords spectacular views of Loch Shiel, Loch Sunart, the Small Isles and Skye on a clear day. The route is strenuous and the path is muddy and indistinct in places. However, the walk is enriched by the changing vegetation as you climb from Atlantic oakwood to birchwood, to moorland following the ailt mhic chiarain watercourse and then onto the rocky summit. You can either return by the same route or via the old mine path and the historic coffin cairn route. Look out for ptarmigan and golden eagle.Full details of the route and options are available in local guides, as well as books detailing climbing routes for Scottish mountains/Corbetts.
