The Knoydart Peninsula is well known for some of the best hill walking routes in the area including many corbetts, tarbets and of course the three most celebrated; Luinne Bheinn, Meall Buidhe and Ladhar Bheinn (the most westerly munro in Scotland). Book a private guided walk with the local ranger or try a spot of fishing on the nearby River Inverie and Kilchoan Estate (booking essential). Sea fishing is very good in Knoydart and even mackerel fishing off the village pier is a great way to relax while on holiday. Salmon, brown trout and sea trout can all be caught locally.
The wildlife never ceases to amaze guests at Glaschoille Lodge, where it's not uncommon to observe otters breakfasting, pine martens, badgers, as well as roe deer and red deer on the hill. Deer stalking is provided by a professional deer-stalker on the Knoydart Estate, the stalking runs from mid September for stags, and mid November for hinds. Full deer-stalking packages are available from neighbouring Kilchaon Estate or the Knoydart Foundation. Hire some bicycles from the local ranger and hit the bike tracks in the woods maintained by the Knoydart Forest Trust or take a cycle over to Airor which at one time used to be on of the business settlements on Knoydart before the clearances took their toll on the community.
Ceilidh and traditional music nights
The village hall plays host to ceilidh nights and impromptu gatherings with local traditional folk musicians playing for dances where everyone is encouraged to join in, children, guests and locals alike. Burns night and Hogmanay are celebrated widely and there is a programme of events that runs all year in the hall with a licenced bar run by volunteers in the community. You'll need your dancing shoes on for the infamous Orcadian strip the willow that spills out the doors and onto the street at times. As well as being the perfect setting for wedding venues, we can also cater for all other special occasions such as retirements, anniversaries and birthday parties.
