About the local area

Set amid the Glenshiel Mountains, in a quiet lane that leads through to the hills, the immediate area is a haven for wildlife. Resident otters can be spotted along the shoreline and sea-eagles, golden eagles and a wide variety of other birds are seen locally. The water by the cottage is tidal so the view is constantly changing. Take a stroll along the dry beach or when the tide is up launch your own canoe or small boat from the shoreline. There is a wide range of outdoor pursuits enjoyed locally, including hill walking, climbing, angling, golf, riding, sailing and diving. There is also plenty to see and do right on the doorstep. The fairy tale castle of Eilean Donan, enchantingly situated on a promontory in the loch and accessed by a small causeway, is just 3 miles 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. The picture post card village of Plockton is also closeby, made famous as the venue for the television series Hamish Macbeth. 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. The nearby sea port village of Kyle of Lochalsh is the gateway to the Isle of Skye. There are a variety of small, unusual shops here, together with cafes and restaurants. A glass-bottomed boat also runs from Kyle to view the sea life close to hand. The Gavin Maxwell Otter Centre at Kyleakin is well worth a visit and numerous distilleries and ancient historical sites are all within easy reach. Armadale Castle, seat of the Clan Donald, with its superb gardens and grounds set in 20,000 acres, also houses a fascinating museum and is easily accessible in the south of the island. Boat trips to see the seals, dolphins and whales run from Armadale harbour. The ferry also sails from here across to Mallaig on the mainland. This part of island is known as the garden of Skye and is 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.
With its close proximity to the Isle of Skye and the mountains, hills, lochs and coastline of the Western Highlands, this lovely loch-side cottage makes an ideal base for exploring this spectacular region of Scotland.
