Roshven House, dates mostly from the 1850s with the middle of the house hailing from an earlier time. Every item used in its construction, including the stone for the house and the soil for the garden, was originally brought in by sea. It stands on a secluded bay with a sweep of sandy beach and a small island off-shore, looking out over one of the great romantic views of the west, a pattern of islands including Eigg, Muck and Rhum. The name Roshven (Rois Bheinn, 2876 ft/876.6m) is from the conspicuous hill behind the house, just a few miles off the historic A830 known as The Road to the Isles, linking Fort William with the fishing port of Mallaig, a ferry point for Skye. The Fort William-Mallaig railway,  now better known to the younger traveller as the Hogwarts Railway, shares this scenic route.
