Things to do:
The Cart Barn is the perfect base to explore from, and to see what the West Highlands of Scotland have to offer.
Within walking distance from The Cart Barn are 3 beautiful beaches offering views of the small isles of Eigg, Muck and Rum, and in season, seals are common, as is the odd basking shark.
Slightly further afield, for the more adventurous, is the mountain Rois-Bheinn, the joint highest hill in the Scottish region of Moidart, which gives its name to the area 'Roshven', and whose translation literally means 'red hill' due to the stunning sunsets it sees.
Various local boat trips are available offering the possibility of glimpses of whales, porpoises, dolphins, otters and both Golden and Sea Eagles! The Isle of Skye and the Small Isles are also just a short trip by boat, as is Tobermory, the location for the popular children's programme Balamory. We are also within easy driving distance of Ben Nevis, Loch Ness and Oban.
Fishermen can fly or sea fish locally, and golfers are also catered for at the stunning Traigh golf course adjacent to the glorious white sands of Morar, setting of the famous film 'Local Hero'.
