About the local area

The village of Broadford is just 2 miles away.  This thriving village, overlooking Broadford Bay has an excellent selection of amenities. There are a number of restaurants, bars and cafes as well as a good selection of shops – from interesting individual stores to a larger supermarket. This area is a hill-walkers and climber’s paradise. The famous Cuillin mountain ranges are easily accessible and there are superb walks in the immediate area suitable for all abilities. There are a wide variety of activities and places of interest in the area. An excellent boat trip runs from the nearby village of Elgol to encounter the wildlife and view the amazing seascapes. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, riding, golf and fishing are all local pastimes. Nearby Armadale Castle, seat of the Clan Donald, with its superb gardens and grounds set in 20,000 acres, also houses a renowned museum, the Clandonald Centre, which is well worth a visit.  Boat trips to see the seals, dolphins, porpoises and whales that frequent this part of the coast run from Armadale harbour are also highly recommended.  The Sleat peninsular is also renowned for 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 sea port of Kyle of Lochalsh, the otter centre at Kyleakin, and ancient historical sites are all within easy reach.
