Our Inspector's view

Standing on the shore of Loch Sunart in 22 acres of sumptuous grounds, Kilcamb offers unruffled tranquillity and seclusion, the journey alone providing a delightful taste of the wild Ardnamurchan Peninsula. With just 12 rooms, the Georgian house is an intimate hideaway that delivers old-school country-house comforts all the way to the elegant dining room, where linen is crisp, cutlery and glassware sparkle, and the loch views paint an unforgettable backdrop to modern Scottish cooking. Gary Phillips provisions the larder from local crofts, estates and fishing boats, the latter’s catch showcased in daily-changing seafood specials. Hand-dived scallops might open the show in the vibrant company of ham hock terrine and pickled cauliflower. Next up, perhaps braised featherblade of superb Highland beef with herb mashed potato, crispy haggis cannelloni and bourguignon sauce.

About The area

Discover Highland

Apart from the Orkneys and the Shetlands, Highland is Scotland’s northernmost county. Probably its most famous feature is the mysterious and evocative Loch Ness, allegedly home to an ancient monster that has embedded itself in the world’s modern mythology, and the region’s tourist industry. Monster or no, Loch Ness is beautiful and it contains more water than all the lakes and reservoirs in England and Wales put together. The loch is 24 miles long, one mile wide and 750 feet deep, making it one of the largest bodies of fresh water in Europe. 

At the very tip of the Highlands is John o’ Groats, said to be named after a Dutchman, Jan de Groot, who lived here in the early 16th century and operated a ferry service across the stormy Pentland Firth to Orkney. In fact, the real northernmost point of the British mainland is Dunnet Head, whose great cliffs rise imposingly above the Pentland Firth some two miles further north than John o’ Groats.

The Isle of Skye is the largest and best known of the Inner Hebrides. Its name is Norse, meaning ‘isle of clouds’, and the southwestern part of the island has some of the heaviest rainfall on the whole of the British coast. Despite this, it’s the most visited of all the islands of the Inner Hebrides. It’s dominated from every view by the high peaks of the Cuillins, which were only conquered towards the end of the 19th century.
