The immediate area is itself a place of interest and is particularly rich in plant and wildlife. Dolphins, whales, basking sharks, seals and sea otters can be seen together with birds of prey and a wide range of indigenous and visiting birds. Information on salmon, trout and sea fishing is available and in some cases, bookings for boats and beats can be made.
The stunning scenery makes it an ideal location for numerous walks and cycle rides and the Cuillin mountain range offers exceptionally good climbing for all levels. Many of the peaks can be accessed by experienced walkers.
At Sconser and Skeabost there are two golf courses open to non-members, both of which can be booked in advance.
