Glenmore Bay

Although this bay is, by Hebridean standards, a bit industrial with some sort of operation down by the shore (wave turbines I am told), and by the main(ish) road, there is one good thing to see. Set up by the well known Scottish photographer, Michael MacGregor, it is the privately-owned Ardnamurchan Natural History Visitor Centre (from the pontoon, up the hill, turn left at the main road, 10 minutes). The fixed CCTV cameras are particularly good — one is under water in the local burn to see trout but was out of action in 2010. And there is an underwater view of a pond too. They clearly major on eagles — golden and sea. The coffee, lunch and tea café does the usual things (chocolate cake etc) and the shop also does the usual things (tea towels, gem stones, photographs). The audiovisual show of Ardnamurchan uses Michael MacGregor photographs to good effect and the music is nice, but there seemed to be dirt on the screen when I was last there. In fact in 2010 it looked a bit tired to me, not quite as good as I remembered from earlier years. However, it was taken over by new owners in 2016 and I am told things are looking up and may not be now quite as I have described them. Great if true. Go and see for yourself, and I will too.
