From Connel the A828 crosses the bridge to the Benderloch peninsula. This peninsula gets its name from the Gaelic beinn eader da loch, the hill between two lochs; the lochs in question being Etive and Creran.

Once over the Connel Bridge a minor road heads east, along the northern shore of Loch Etive towards Ardchattan.

North of Loch Creran is the area known as Appin, which lies between that loch and Loch Leven.

At Portnacroish in 1463 Sir John Stewart was murdered during his own wedding by Alan MacDougall. This resulted in the 1468 battle of Stalc. A memorial stands near to the church.

To the west, Castle Stalker sits on an island at the mouth of Loch Laoich, an inlet of Loch Linnhe.
