Shiel Bridge 9 miles.
Just ten miles from the main route to the Isle of Skye, the small coastal village of Glenelg lies on the shores of the Sound of Sleat, surrounded by scenery deemed magnificent even by West Highland standards. The glen has preserved its unspoilt beauty and sense of isolation, yet remains within easy reach of the more well-known centres of attraction in the area. Overlooking the Isle of Skye, it is situated on the route once used by drovers from Skye to get their cattle to the mainland, crossing over the narrow Kyle Rhea straits. A couple of miles from the village on the Arnisdale road you will find Sandaig bay, named "Camusfearna" by Gavin Maxwell in his novel Ring of Bright Water, and where there is a cairn for his beloved otter Edal. Glenelg also has the best preserved Pictish Brochs on mainland Scotland. The ruins of Bernera Barracks, an 18th Century garrison for English government troops, still stand next to the village.

Glenelg 5 miles. A traditional detached bungalow situated next door to the owner's home, in the tiny crofting hamlet of Moyle Park, 5 miles from the popular seaside town of Glenelg. Decorated and furnished to a good standard, this delightful, single-storey Glenelg cottage is spacious and offers warm, welcoming holiday accommodation for all the family. With a well-equipped, fitted kitchen, a spacious sitting/dining room and spectacular views down the river valley and over working farm land, this Glenelg cottage is an ideal retreat for wildlife and nature lovers on the lookout for corncrakes, golden eagles, cormorants, and herons or whales, dolphins, otters and seals.
