Roshven Farm is situated in Moidart, 30 miles West of Fort William, in an area of considerable natural beauty.

It enjoys a rare commodity - peace and quiet - with magnificent views of the Hebridean Islands to the west and mountains all around. Our small sheep and highland cattle farm is on the shores of Loch Ailort, a sea loch that opens into the Sound of Arisaig. The highest hill for quite a distance - Roisbheinn - rises steeply out of the loch at the back of the farm to just under 3000 feet. For the adventurous, the views from the top are almost too spectacular to describe.

We are in an excellent position for those who want to tour Lochaber and even further afield - whether it is a boat trip to Skye and the Small Isles, a ride on the steam train or just a walk in the hills. There is a wealth of history in Moidart, not least the associations with 'Bonnie Prince Charlie' and the Jacobite movement; and with all the natural flora and fauna you will run out of time to see and do it all.

We hope you enjoy using our website - from learning about the fabulous paintings & sketches of Jemima Blackburn, to booking a visit to stay in our chalets.

Farm Holidays provides information to those of you who would like to experience the peace and quiet and magnificent views that Roshven has to offer by staying in one of our five purpose built chalets.

Jemima Blackburn and her husband, Hugh Blackburn, bought Roshven Estate in 1854, during which time she painted her family and friends, important visitors and local people going about their everyday work: cutting peat, gathering bracken, making hay and many other rural activities. This Scots girl was to become one of the foremost illustrators of the Victorian Age, achieving widespread recognition under the initials JB or her married name Mrs Hugh Blackburn. During your holiday, why not step back in time a hundred and fifty years? Re-visit the places Jemima loved and painted. Watch the same birds which she illustrated so vividly in her "Birds from Moidart" and "Birds drawn from Nature."
