District in the western Scottish Highlands, in the southwest of the peninsula between Loch Linnhe and the sea.  It includes the westernmost point on the Scottish mainland (its name means point of the great ocean).   It belonged to Argyllshire  until 1975, when it became part of the Lochaber district (since abolished) in the Highland Region.
