If travelling from Mallaig to Armadale or vice versa there is a useful spot about 15 mins from the Armadale ferry just off the A851.
Depending on direction being travelled, either turn right about 200 metres before the terninal if going to Armadale ,or left 200 metres after leaving the terminal, it is signed Ardvasar.
Continue from that junction about 1.5kms through the village until you come to the start of a plantation on the right.
Immediately there on the right and just off the road is a flat area overlooking the Kyle and across to Knoydart, Mallaig and Morar.
Turning right is impossible so it is necessary to go on to turn and come back to enter left. I drive an lwb Volkswagen T5 conversion and only need to go on about 300 yds to a wide corner and a forest track on its right to manouver.
A smaller coachbuilt might manage here, or go on further to a wider area but an American style could never manage.
Bear in mind that, if you are catching the Armadale to Mallaig ferry, you need to allow extra time for the reverse manouver, unless a companion guides you to reverse out.
