Hill Walking

It is difficult to know where to start! The whole area is a walkers’ paradise. There are short or long walks, flat or steep walks – in fact, any type of walk to fit almost any ability.

A short walk along the beach in front of the house can be enjoyed by many.

The Inchree Waterfall is a short walk from the house. There are various paths in the Inchree area so a walk can be as long or short as you wish.
