Glengorm Castle was built in 1860 and sits on a headland north of Tobermory. The castle, which is still a family home, offers five roomsand guests have full use of the main hall, library and dining room. An ideal location for those seeking peace and a rural retreat. There are many lovely walks in the nearby, and marsh fritillary butterflies and slender scotch burnet moths have been recorded in the locality. Tobermory is also close by offering a wide range of dining opportunities.
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.
