About the local area

The small railway station is a halt on the Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh railway route; voted one of the most scenic railway routes in the world. The surrounding area is renowned for its magnificent landscapes, incorporating mountains, rivers and sea lochs. A paradise for lovers of the great outdoors, it offers unlimited sporting opportunities: climbing, hill-walking, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing and mountain-biking are all available close by. There are some wonderful walks direct from the property, with miles of hills, riverside and forestry to explore, either on foot or by bike. The nearby village of Lochcarron is particularly charming. Set right on the shores of the loch, surrounded by the spectacular hills and mountains of Wester Ross, Lochcarron is bounded by the sea-loch on one side and attractive cottages and houses that straddle the main street on the other. There are a number of pubs, cafes and shops here, as well as a golf course open to visitors. The area is also a haven for wildlife. Otters and seals can be seen along the shore-line and dolphins have been spotted in the bay. There are some superb drives in this part of the Highlands. A trip to Applecross via the highest pass in Britain is a must. Known as the “Pass of the Cattle” and rising to over 2,000 feet, it affords amazing views across the Minch to the isles of Raasay and Skye. This makes a wonderful day out, with dramatic scenery, beautiful beaches and excellent food at the local restaurants. The fairy tale castle of Eilean Donan, enchantingly situated on a promontory in the loch and accessed by a small causeway, is well worth a visit. A spectacular route takes you past this famous castle and through the amazing mountain range known as the Five Sisters of Kintail and beautiful Glen Shiel, before reaching the shores of Loch Ness. The charming sea port of Kyle of Lochalsh, gateway to the Isle of Skye, is just a short drive away. A glass-bottomed boat runs from here to view the sea life close to hand. The Gavin Maxwell Otter Centre at Kyleakin is well worth a visit and there are also a number of ancient historical and archaeological sites in the area. The picture post card village of Plockton is also close by. With its picturesque flower-filled gardens, little winding streets and pretty cottages lining the foreshore it easy to see why it has also become a haunt for artists in recent years.
