Unsure of what to do in the area other than constantly looking at amazing scenery, geology, wildlife then here are just a few ideas ….
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 by visiting the Walk Highlands website – a wonderful free resource, and we have thoroughly enjoyed trying them out.
We enjoy cycling our tandem, although we don’t seem to have as much time as we would like for it. We can store your bikes in the dry overnight for you, and if you need to wash them down at the end of the day we can provide you with a hose and brush. There are organised tours you can join if you are not too sure about doing them alone – they can be fully supported.
There are some wonderful places to kayak around here and we get out on our own when time/tide permits. At high tide we can launch directly from Seadrift. Guided kayak tours for all abilities are available in the area. Try contacting South Skye Sea Kayaks or Sea Kayak Plockton
Want someone else to take the strain but would like to experience the varied bird and sea life? Then there are many boat trips to be had. Along with the many birds including cormorant, shag, gannet and sea eagle, you may also spot minke whale, basking shark, seal, porpoise and otter. Of course this is wildlife and nothing can be guaranteed – although Calum’s Seal Trips in Plockton don’t charge if you don’t see seals.
In Kyle of Lochalsh Seaprobe Atlantis Glass Bottom Boat Trips offer great underwater experiences without you getting wet.
If you fancy a little luxury then Sea Flower Skye offers offer full and half day tours of Skye, Rona and Raasay with a locally caught seafood lunch.
