Swordle Bay is a stunning bay on the northern shores of Ardnamurchan, located between the coastal headlands of Garbh Rubha and Ockle Point. There are some stunning views from the bay to the Small Isles, as well as some interesting geological formations and local archaeology.
The white sandy beach at Swordle is a great place to immerse yourself in the wilderness of Ardnamurchan peninsula. Swordle Bay and the surrounding hills have also been the subject of an ongoing archaeological transition projects with discoveries including Viking Boat Burial, Neolithic burial cairn, a medieval corn drying kiln and an ancient water powered mill.
Swordle Bay is accessed on foot along the track to Swordle Farm. Continue by the farm house and outbuildings to the end of the track, passing through a metal gate by a house to access the lovely bay.
