Locally there are many activities to do, including visiting archaeological sites or wildlife hot-spots. Along the shoreline you can see seals, seabirds and occasionally otters. Wildfowl and waders can be watched on the loch of Brochan, while the RSPB reserve at Cottisgarth is a good place to see hen harriers. In the vicinity, there is an interesting doocot at the Hall of Rendall and a preserved broch at Gurness.
