Achateny (Scottish Gaelic: Ach/Achadh an Teine) is a hamlet in Argyll on Ardnamurchan in the Scottish Highlands. It is in the Scottish council area of the Highland, near Branault, along a country lane off the B8007 road several hundred metres from the coast.[1] To the east lies the village of Kilmory.

Trees in the area include typical highland birch wood, oaks and rowans and a damp rocky and mossy substrate supporting ferns. Shell sand is also present Achateny with sand dunes. The low-lying land to the west of Achateny is bog.[2] The hamlet contains nothing more than a few scattered dwellings including a white cottage named "Caalmojo".
