Offering comfortable holiday accommodation, Sanderlings is situated in Toberonochy on the Isle of Luing with views across Shuna Sound to Shuna Island and the Mainland. Once a busy slate quarrying settlement, Toberonochy is now a peaceful and picturesque harbour village with easy access to the local slate beaches and piers and with views across Cuan Sound to Seil Island.
Though the island measures only 6 miles long by 1.5 miles wide, there is plenty to keep holidaymakers entertained. Opened in 2015, the Atlantic Islands Centre is a must for the itinerary, offering tourist information and local history, showcasing local crafters and selling their work. Upstairs is a permanent heritage exhibition and the café there is licenced and has a snack menu with locally sourced seafood. The delicious cakes are all made by the Isle of Luing Bakery. There is a well-stocked village store and post office near Cullipool also stocking freshly baked breads from the Bakery.
Being an island, the sea is always very close to hand and both fishing and wildlife boat trips can be arranged from Cullipool Harbour. Depending on the weather, the Isle of Luing Coastal Rowing club also offer beginners rowing sessions (donation required) aboard their Shetland skiffs Virda and Hinba.
There are a number of walks on the island including a circular walk of roughly 3.5 miles taking in the island’s quiet coastline and what remains of the slate quarrying industry. For the adventurous walker, one lap of the island equates to just over 15 miles. An evening stroll around Cullipool is also a must as the village is famous for breath-taking sunsets over Mull and the Garvellachs Islands. For those who prefer a faster pace, bike hire is available from Luing Bike Hire.
Ferries regularly leave Luing for the neighbouring Seil Island which offers easy access back to mainland Scotland via the Clachan Bridge (Bridge over the Atlantic.) Once there Oban, the seafood capital of Scotland and gateway to the Isles is only a 40 minute drive.
