There are over 25 Munros (mountains over 3000ft) within a 10 mile radius - and 2 famous Munros on the doorstep.
The beautiful River Orchy is just 3 minutes walk away and is one of Scotland's best salmon fishing rivers and popular with white water rafting enthusiasts. There are always interesting birds in the garden, and the occassional visiting deer. The local hotel is just a few minutes away for meals or drinks.
