Holiday park review: In Scotland’s Wild West


With remote forests, lochs and beaches to explore, we’ve discovered a holiday home park with nature at the heart of its attraction.

Imagine owning a holiday home on the island-like Ardnamurchan Peninsula, a natural paradise on the wild west coast of Scotland. This is truly a place in which to recharge and reset from the fast pace of modern life.

Loch views

Resipole Farm Holiday Park

Resipole Farm Holiday Park is on the shore of Loch Sunart, giving access to stunning views and an abundance of wildlife without having to venture outside of the grounds. You get here either by ferry across a loch, or by the famous Road to the Isles – magical!

Resipole not only offers breathtaking vistas but is also a working farm with ecology as its ethos (it’s the winner of multiple tourism and conservation awards). And it’s a haven for all creatures, with red deer and eagles being a common sight. Loch Sunart is stunning.

Home to seals, porpoises and otters, water from the Atlantic feeds the loch and also freshwater streams from the mountains. The combination of the sea water that is warmer than the cold waters running off the mountains has allowed a large and diverse range of marine life to flourish. The park has its own slipway and berths, so it’s ideal for boat owners.

Fishing friendly

It’s also the perfect location for family day's fishing on the lake and summer evenings barbecuing the catch of the day. There’s more to this fabulous location than the natural attractions of the region, though.

There’s culture as well – Resipole Farm has its own art gallery with a diverse mix of fine and contemporary art on display. The gallery hosts live music events throughout the year. Resipole Farm also has its own shop.

This is, as you’d expect, a brilliant area for walking of all types. Adventurous walkers can make for the top of Ben Resipole, a 845m Corbett (Corbetts are Scottish mountains between 762m and 914m in height).

Ben Resipole offers spectacular views, taking in the Inner Hebrides, Ben Nevis and the Ardnamurchan Peninsula – and the walk to the mountain begins within Resipole Farm Holiday Park. There’s so much to do, from culture to nature; from remote forests to beaches, that you’ll find something new to explore every time you visit your holiday home here.
