Things to do....

There is not enough time in one week to do all this area offers, but below are some ideas.


We have several books of walks in the area, as well as OS maps. Our favourites:

- the island of Kerrera( 2-3 hours with a good tea room and a castle)

- Ben Lora - 2-3 hours to the top or just take an hour to go up to the    Eagle’s Eyrie and back. Go for a coffee at Jimmy’s cafe at the foot in Benderloch

- Ben Cruachan - a Munro with fabulous view from the top - takes about 6-8 hours to the top and down again.

- and others
