There are a wide variety of low, mid and high level walks which can be coastal, inland, mountainous, woodland, etc. You can find a walk to suit you by visiting the Walk Highlands website – a wonderful free resource – and we have thoroughly enjoyed trying them out.
Many guests enjoy cycling around the island, you can store your bikes in the shed. There are organised tours you can join if you are not too sure about doing them alone – they can be fully supported.
Cycles may be hired from:

There are some wonderful places to kayak around here and we get out on our own when time/tide permits. There are guided kayak tours to be had within the area dealing with any level of expertise.
To experience the varied bird and sea life, there are many boat trips to be had. With both, Bella Jane and Misty Isle you can book trips to the Small Isles of Rum, Canna, Eigg and Soay or shorter trips to Loch Coruisk in the heart of the Cuillin mountains.
Along with the many sea birds, you may also spot minkie whale, basking shark, seal, porpoise and otter, although nothing can be guaranteed – however, Calum’s Seal Trips in Plockton you only pay when you’ve seen a seal!
