Castle Stalker and Port Appin

Castle Stalker is situated at the picturesquely Loch Laich, an inlet off Loch Linnhe and is visible from the A828 road around mid-way between Oban and Glen Coe. The small isle is accessible (with difficulty) from the shore at low tide and it is one of the best-preserved medieval tower-houses surviving in western Scotland. It was brought to fame by the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It also appeared in the film Highlander: Endgame.

The coast around Port Appin is extremely beautiful – a combination of seascapes and rugged and mountainous country inland – and Appin forms part of the Lynn of Lorn National Scenic Area, one of 40 in Scotland.
