The Lochalsh Woodland Garden, 2 miles east of Kyle of Lochalsh on the A87, provides pleasant walks beside the loch. Mature Scots pine, oaks and beeches with developing collections of bamboo, ferns, fuchsias, hydrangeas and rhododendrons give the garden its attractive diversity. This traditional Highland crofting cultural landscape encompasses crofts, farmland, woodland, moorland, villages, coastline, saltmarsh, lochs and islands.
Coastal walks round shingle and coral beaches give spectacular views of Skye and Applecross. There are miles of trails to choose from, joining the dots between sheltered bays and secret woodlands, onto open moors and the pretty crofting villages of Drumbuie, Duirinish and Plockton.
