The Ardnamurchan peninsula is a wild, remote yet beautiful place full of wonderful scenery situated on the west coast of Scotland.
The area is noted for being very unspoilt and undisturbed and its remoteness is accentuated by the fact that the main access route from Salen on Loch Sunart is a single track winding road for much of its length. There are moorland, forests, lochs and beaches to explore including the magnificent Sanna Bay and wildlife is all around, from golden eagles to whales and dolphins.
Shinty in Ardnamurchan and surrounding areas
Historically, shinty has always been played in Morvern and the Ardnamurchan area but this was the traditional New Year's game and there is no history of clubs in the area. Latterly Morvern played an annual game against Kilmallie. The club's colours were taken from the coats of arms of two of the main ruling clans of the area. The MacIains who were a branch of Clan Donald and the Camerons. The colours are red, gold and black.
