Portuairk (Scottish Gaelic: Port Uairce) is a crofting township, at the western end of the Ardnamurchan peninsula, Lochaber, in the Highland council area of Scotland, and claims the honour of being the most westerly settlement on the British mainland, although nearby Kilchoan is the most westerly village.[1]

Overlooking Sanna Bay, the village is visited by walkers and scenery enthusiasts, with views of Skye and the Small Isles: Rùm, Eigg, and Muck.

Cuillin View is a traditional cottage at the end of the bay roughly 172 years old.
