We are within striking distance to the picturesque village of Plockton with its famous palm trees and the home of the famous Gaelic Poet, Sorley MacLean.
Nearby is the village of Glen Elg, close to the secret home for many years, of the author Gavin Maxwell and his otters. Famous for many books and university papers, including The Ring Of Bright Water. There is a museum just over the Skye Bridge, in Kyleakin in his memory. Glen Elg area is also home to Iron Age Pictish Brochs, beautifully preserved by Historic Scotland, one of which is the best preserved in the UK. This village is also host to something truly remarkable..... the last surviving Turntable Ferry in the world, where it is still possible to 'sail over the sea to Skye'! A short crossing, but stepping back in time, will see you follow a part of the old 'drovers' routes... this crossing being a perilous part of the journey taking cattle from the Islands to the markets down south!
Low level waterfall walks, shoreline walks, as well as high level harder climbs and long hikes, this area offers something for all, or, just simply just relax in the quietness!
Not far from the NC500 route, Salty Towers can offer an extension to your trip, giving you the chance to explore this beautiful area as an added bonus. A trip to Applecross for the day is also possible, if you dare the infamous 'road'!!
