Always be aware that with holidays on the West coast of Scotland, it’s better to choose an activity that suits the weather of the day. There are many things to do – some things are better when it’s wet.
The sea is very accessible for sailing and sea kayaking, the coastline and small offshore islands are fascinating with the opportunity to see seals and otters.
There is an abundance of brown trout to fish for – ‘brownies‘, as they are called locally – in the lochs and rivers. We can also arrange deer stalking in the company of a Ghillie who will have expert local knowledge and experience.
The area offers a rich abundance of wildlife, the magnificent sea eagle can often be seen as can golden eagles, puffins, dolphins, basking sharks in the summer and the occasional minkie whale.
Sea fishing for mackerel and boat trips to the fascinating Island of Staffa with the wonders of Fingal’s Cave and the beautiful shell beaches of the Isle of Coll are all within easy reach.Iona with its gorgeous beaches and famous Abbey, where Christianity first came to Britain, is but an hour away.
Climb invigorating mountains like Ben More and take walks on this island of many contrasts at any time of the year.
There is a 9 hole golf course at Craignure situated on the shore of Scallastle Bay, a mile and a half north of the ferry port at Craignure, alongside the A849 to Tobermory. At Tobermory you will also find a golf course overlooking the bay above the town.
