Music @ the Arisaig Hotel

At the Arisaig Hotel we love music and try to bring you some of the best available from time to time. 

There certainly is some amazing talent both locally and further afield. We are lucky to have Tam the Banjo, who draws in fantastic musicians every Friday evening for an open session in the Crofter's Bar from 9p.m.

The Arisaig Accoustic Music Club also puts on monthly (or so) concerts in the hotel on  a Monday evening. Keep an eye on their facebook page for details. There is a charge for these concerts.

Over the Festive period two of our long-time favourites, John Langan and Tannara both gave us superb evenings.

We are currently working on a few treats during the main season. So far we have just 2 bands confirmed, but more will be coming up shortly. These gigs are FREE!

Sea views overlooking Arisaig Bay

The Hotel is an old coaching inn, built in around 1720.  It has 13 rooms, all en suite, most of which offer sea views overlooking Arisaig Bay and out towards the distinctive shapes of the Small Isles of Eigg and Rum.

Arisaig has a certain magnetic charm – a real lived-in village with a friendly feel. Once people discover Arisaig they can’t help returning again and again, generation after generation. It is truly an area of outstanding natural beauty, with beautiful beaches, sparkling lochs and rugged hills.



The Crofters Rest Bar at Arisaig Hotel has regular Friday evening Traditional music sessions, as well as occasional bands coming to perform. The Arisaig Accoustic Music Club also puts on monthly (or so) concerts in the hotel.

There is plenty to do locally to keep you occupied for a week or two, with lots of great walks, a nine hole golf course, sea kayaking and bike hire available at the hotel, a variety of boat trips available from Arisaig, Mallaig and Glenfinnan and a swimming pool and gym nearby in Mallaig – just to mention a few.

Don’t make the mistake of coming for one night or two – a minimum of 4 nights is needed to wind down and begin to discover the attractions of the area. To get a flavour of the local area and some of what there is to do during your visit, have a look at Facilities at the Arisaig Hotel, The Area and Activities in the Arisaig Area pages.
