About the local area

The more adventurous are spoilt for choice. Hill-walking, climbing, cycling, canoeing and kayaking are all regular pastimes. The Glenelg to Kylerhea ferry which runs from the jetty from April to October across to Skye is the original route referred to in the well-known song “over the sea to Skye”, having existed before the coming of the railway and Kyle of Lochalsh ferry. Kylerhea is noted for its otter population, with a sanctuary where visitors can use the hides to watch these shy and enigmatic creatures. Seals, pine martin, cormorants and a wide variety of other birdlife are regularly seen in the area.
There is also plenty to see and do within easy reach. The fairy tale castle of Eilean Donan, enchantingly situated on a promontory in the loch and accessed by a small causeway, is just a short drive away. 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.
