Just 5 minutes away is the historic harbour of Eilean Iarmain. Here small boats and crafts are moored and in season visitors can take a trip to view the sea-life closer to hand as well as launch their own small boats or canoes from the jetty. There is an excellent hotel right on the shore-line offering good seafood and fresh local produce to non-residents. The area is a magnet for artists and there are exhibitions from internationally renowned artists at various times of the year. Known as “the Garden of Skye” this southern end of this beautiful Isle is renowned for its lovely coastline and miles of stunning scenery as well as its superb walking, climbing, bird-watching and beautiful fauna and flora. It also offers easy access to a wealth of historical sites and places of interest. The fairy tale castle of Eilean Donan, the charming sea port of Kyle of Lochalsh, the Gavin Maxwell Otter Centre at Kyleakin, numerous distilleries and ancient historical sites are all within easy reach. Golf, fishing, mountain-biking, walking, climbing, sailing, kayaking and horse-riding are all enjoyed locally.
