The land of Ardgour stretch from the Glensanda Superquarry, Kingairloch and Kilmalieu in the south and west (bordering Morvern and Sunart), up to Conaglen, Treslaig, Camasnagaul, Achaphubuil and Blaich in the north (bordering Glenfinnan).
The area is served by the A861 road but the easiest access from the south is by way of a short ferry crossing from the A82 in Inverness-shire; the alternative is a 40-mile trip around Loch Linnhe and Loch Eil. The ferries run every half hour until about 9 pm.
Ardgour has formed part of the territory of the Clan MacLean ever since the MacMasters were removed from the territory in the 15th Century. The current Laird of Ardgour, Robin Maclean, is a MacLean by adoption. He is the nephew of the last hereditary Maclean of Ardgour - a Lady Laird - having changed his name by legal action.
At the instigation of MacDonald of the Isles, the MacMasters were usurped by the Macleans in 1410. A Maclean of Ardgour has been Laird since then until the current time, Robin Maclean, 18th Laird of Ardgour succeeding his aunt, Catriona Louise Maclean, 17th Laird in 1988.
