Monday Travel Inspiration - Arisaig


inspiring landscape


A few years back I spent a few months working in the West Coast of Scotland in two different remote villages. I talked about my trip to the Isle of Eigg last week and thought I would share some photos of my time in Arisaig, a small village with around 300 people. When I was there is had one hotel which also housed the local pub, a post office and a nice cafe. The real attraction however was the stunning landscape which never failed to inspire me. I use to take long walks and see no one for 2-3 hours, may a time I across Stags and deer and found the place incredibly peaceful.


Beautiful view
beautiful coastline


It's one of those places that I hope to visit again and take the family this time. The train from Glasgow via Fort William on the West Highland line which is famous and incredible and should be on every bodies to do list as you pass by lochs, rugged landscape, mountains and hours of countryside. In fact it was voted the top rail journey in the world by readers of the travel magazine Wanderlust in 2009 and I have to say I agree with them.

  3. Looks beautiful. I travelled round Scotland when I was little but I don't remember much, although I can remember the Loch Ness, I was sure I was going to see the monster! x

  11. When someone writes an post he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know it.
    Therefore that's why this paragraph is amazing.
    Thanks!

  12. To have a long peaceful walk like this to and from work would be the greatest thing anyone could do for themselves. If this is the kind of scene I'd see everyday, I would no doubt bring my camera with me everyday.. nice shots by the way. :)
