How do you turn a three night break into a week long holiday? You can't, but The Glenuig Inn in Glenuig on the Ardnamurchan Peninsula in Scotland came close. With a restaurant serving local food so fresh it slaps you in the face, simple but classy en-suite rooms and an en-suite ocean with a landlord come walking/kayaking guide to boot it is easy to fill long summer days and cosy winter nights feeling quite isolated from the world. It's also close to the gateway to the Ferries and Islands.
You can kayak with basking sharks, walk to deserted crofting villages and inaccessible bays or just sit and watch the golden eagles soaring. The finest kippers I have ever eaten from a local smoke house started the days with a mouthful of heaven and I even managed to catch my own supper. It has also been built, and is run, to the highest eco friendly standards. Everything is recycled except for the experience.
