Camusdarach Lodge is located about three miles north of Arisaig, six miles south of Mallaig, and forty miles west of Fort William, by road. It lies on a track looping west off the B8008, which follows the coast west of the A830 Fort William to Mallaig road. The B8008 begins on the left, half a mile north of Arisaig.
Camusdarach Lodge became the home of Eneas Ranald MacDonell (1821 - 1898), the last Laird of Morar after he ran out of money in 1878, and was forced to sell the Morar Estate, retaining 70 acres for his residence. Even under such conditions, no expense was said to have been spared in building the house, and the billiard room was equipped with a form of air-conditioning.
World War II
During World War II, Camusdarach Lodge was requisitioned for training, and used by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) as a Special Training School, designated STS23b. Its specific function is unknown.
