The village sits on an attractive horseshoe bay, surrounded by richly wooded shores. The Knapdale peninsula divides just beyond it.

The western arm leads eventually to the medieval Chapel of Keills, with a display of late medieval carved stones, and from where there is also a fine view of the MacCormaig Islands, the largest of which, Eilean Mór, is a breeding ground for seabirds. The other arm, the Taynish peninsula, is a National Nature Reserve and has one of the largest remaining oak forests in Britain.

On the eastern shore of Loch Sween stand the impressive ruins of the 12th century Castle Sween, probably the oldest stone castle on the Scottish mainland. Beyond it, Kilmory Woodland Park offers fine collection of witch hazels, alpines, hardy ferns, historical sites and lochside walks.
