It is an excellent centre for walkers, ornithologists and botanists. Buzzards and harriers are frequently seen above the raised beach in front of the house.
A short walk takes you to pebble beaches, with cliffs where kittiwake, gannets and razorbills can be found. Another five minute walk takes you to the magnificent Kiloran Bay, with its unbroken golden sands.
Nearby Loch an Sgoltaire and Loch Fada are ideal for trout fishing.
