Ardfern is a small picturesque village positioned on the coast of the Craignish Peninsular in Scotland. The village is surrounded by stunning scenery and overlooks the Craignish Loch. It is the largest settlement on the Peninsular, although when the population declined in the early twentieth century the Laird decided to develop a Yacht Centre and Marina which continues to draw visitors and holidaymakers alike. There is a handful of shops for the everyday purchase and a craft centre to browse although this is no shopping metropolis, it is however rich in beauty with stunning countryside to explore, and has views towards Eilean Mhic Chrion which entices artists and writers to live here. A gentle stroll around the village will unveil attractive cottages and houses, and a church which was built in 1827. There's also a delightful Inn offering a coffee or a dram which dates back to the 17th Century and used to serve the Drovers who were taking their cattle to market in centuries past. Ardfern is home to just over four hundred people although the numbers swell in the summer months with holidaymakers enjoying the Marina, and for those wishing to linger the village offers a choice of comfortable places to stay.
