Arisaig is a village in Lochaber, Inverness-shire, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands, within the area known as The Rough Bounds.

It is also the traditional name for part of the surrounding peninsula south of Loch Morar, extending as far east as Moidart.  ‘Arisaig’ means “the safe bay”.

The whole area was blocked off from the public during WW11 for the training of the SOE (Special Operations Executive) which was the precursor of today’s modern S.A.S. and assisted in the training of Allied Commando and special forces.

Arisaig is an ideal base for learning the history of the Jacobite uprising and Bonnie Prince Charlie who raised his Standard in Glenfinnan in 1745 and finally left Scottish shores from Loch Nan Uamh on a Spanish galleon never to return.

There is a wealth of information relating to the history of the area to be found in the village museum – The Land, Sea and Islands Centre.
