john bunyan, Well Done, we were there earlier this year, on the way to Mull, they now have a more up to date ferry.

Ardnamurchan (Highland) Probably 'promontory of the otters'.

Ard (Scottish Gaelic) 'promontory';

na; (Scottish Gaelic) 'of the';

muir-chon (Scottish Gaelic) 'sea dogs'.

A less likely derivation of the last two parts of this name, muir-chol (Scottish Gaelic) 'sea villany', suggests piracy, which may have been associated with this remote peninsula. The point marks the westernmost edge of the Scottish mainland.
