Walk out of our gate and up onto the cliffs.  There are lots of seabirds.  Watching the gannets dive from a height of up to 30m, hitting the water at up to 100Km/h is incredible!

Great look out at Rubha Hunish bothy – spot the whales and dolphins from here!  It is a lovely walk to the bothy and back from the cottage.  Take a picnic and make a day of it.
