If you fancy a round of golf you're only a short walk to Traigh Golf Course. Golf has been played at Traigh since about 1900. Traigh Golf Course was designed by well-known Scottish golf architect John Salvesen. Cunningly using the natural contours of the hills that rise up from the beach, he created ‘a fair challenge to all levels of golfer - but a course that is great fun to play on, so that one wants to play it again'.

Traigh Cottage is the perfect holiday cottage for families who like beach life - perfect for exploring the stunning West Coast, small villages and outlying Small Isles.
