Where Are We? -
The West Coast of Scotland has some
of the most spectacular scenery in Europe. Benderloch
is on the shores of Loch Linnhe, a long arm of the
Atlantic reaching up from Oban to Fort William and Ben
Nevis. The area is one of unrivalled seascapes with
islands, woodlands and mountains.
Behind Benderloch the forested lower
slopes of Ben Lora provide woodland walks, while a
climb to the top offers a magnificent view of the
Firth of Lorne and the southern Hebrides.
The new cycle track from Oban to Fort
William passes through the village.
Benderloch is on the main A828 Oban
to Fort William road, just 8 miles north of the ferry
port of Oban with its connections to the Outer and
Oban has several large supermarkets,
sea-food restaurants, cinema, a leisure centre with
swimming pool and a tourist information centre. To the
North the road follows the coast to Port Appin,
Ballachulish and the dramatic mountains of Glencoe.
