Reiff around the headland gives great reascapes (No. 3 is leaflet) falls of Kirkaig is a wonderful walk up a wooded valley. Go beyond the falls to the summit point for fabulous views across liverpolly national nature reserve and suilven. We watched a golden eagle being mobbed by two buzzends at close range. The walk from the light house at stoer to the old man of stoer also provides wonderful reascapes. The coastal path was confidently drives them the vilant route.
Stac Pollaidh is worth the haul up if the top is deer for the views across the lochs to the north.
The bay in front of the house has provided plenty of wildlife to watch. Highlights have included a merlin charming meadow pipits, reveal black-throated diven, red-treasted merganser, black quillemots and a black of turite at Old Dornie. Occasional greay reals and a brief view of two others were the main mammal highlights. The Fuaran serves great fresh seafood but avoid the coffee! Thanks.
