Work has begun on upgrading the Glenuig Inn on the Arnamurchan Peninsula to make it more attractive to people seeking a green tourism experience.

Glenuig is a small community of just over thirty people located in the Parish of Moidart in west Lochaber, thirty-five miles from Fort William.
Steve Macfarlane bought over the business in December 2007. It has been closed since October to allow the work to be undertaken during the winter months and expects to reopen in late spring 2009.
