Lochaline Harbour is secure and is a beautiful place to stay while exploring the Sound of Mull. Key features of interest are Ardtornish Castle and the Ardtornish Estate Gardens, Kiel Church, War Memorial and Hazelwood. Lochaline is an excellent base for exploring the unspoilt Morvern countryside, with its abundance of wildlife. The island of Mull is just a short ferry ride across the Sound of Mull and there are also excellent coastal walks in the area.
Lochaline has three licensed premises, a hotel serving bar meals, the Social Club (where temporary membership can be obtained) and The White House Restaurant. Jean’s Snack Bar on the old pier is a favourite haunt for hungry sailors, and the Dive Centre has a café, free Wifi and a drying room, all open to non residents. Fuel can be purchased from Lochaline Stores, which also sells a wide range of food and goods.
Lochaline is set in stunning scenery. There are some lovely coastal and woodland walks close to the village, and a number of sites of historical interest can be reached with little extra effort. A short walk or sail to the head of Lochaline takes you to the splendid gardens of Ardtornish Estate.
