    The area is suitable for hill walking, bird watching, fishing, flora or just getting away from it all in the peace and quiet of the countryside. We are a short walk from the nearest of many beautiful sandy beaches and coastal paths. Boat trips to the Islands can be arranged where a number of seals and seabirds can be seen at close proximity.
