Camas nan Geall

It always worth stopping off at the viewpoint by Camas nan Geall (Bay of the Strangers) off B8007. The view point affords stunning views of Ben Hiant, the sandy bay and the coast beyond. There is an interesting interpretation board identifying the key geological and landmark features of the Ben Hiant Intrusion. There are also some scheduled monuments nearby which can be accessed by heading down the farm track towards the bay. These include a Neolithic chambered cairn (Cladh Chiarain), a Bronze Age standing stone, a 18th century burial ground, an Iron age fort and the remains of two settlements, Tornamoine and Bourblaige; a great place for an archaeological safari.

Get out the binoculars and scan the coast for otters or scan the hills for raptors; Ben Hiant is a good place to look out for golden eagle and white-tailed eagle. Alternatively, relax , have a picnic and contemplate the beauty and peacefulness of the wilds of Ardnamurchan.
