Today (Wednesday) was the last of this summer's Afternoon Scones at Ardnamurchan Parish Church - and the group who have come along each week presented, in rhyme, the three bakers / hosts of the afternoons with gifts of appreciation. What can be added to that - nothing except thank you ladies.

General Information -

Visitors passing through Acharacle or visiting Kilchoan have been heard to ask, 'What do people do all day?' There is so much going on! Scenery to look at and clamber over, rivers to kayak down, fishing on lochs, rivers and the sea. Welcoming accommodation and fabulous food. Why not come and sample time in a beautiful remote and rural location?
