They offer easy access to sailing and fishing and are an ideal holiday base. Excellent walking, cycling and climbing country (the south ridge of Glen Shiel has no less than five munros - hills over 3,000ft), affording magnificent views of Loch Duich, the Five Sisters of Kintail and famous Eilean Donan Castle which is surrounded by majestic scenery and is one of the most visited and important attractions in the Scottish Highlands. There are several National Trust properties in the region, including Plockton, a delightful village much loved by artists and which lies within an easy drive as does Glenelg, home to a country inn providing good food and the seasonal ferry to the Isle of Skye. Here visitors can discover the Isle's stunning landscape of rugged mountains, tumbling rivers, colourful moorland, rich sea-lochs and spectacular coastline that is home to bountiful wildlife as well as fine museums and heritage and craft centres.
A shop, post office and pub serving food can be found in Shiel Bridge, 5 miles. Visit Kyle of Lochalsh where you can take a dip in the swimming-pool or why not make a day of it and take a relaxing train journey to Inverness where you travel through some of the best scenery that Scotland has to offer.
