About half an hour walk from the hostel will lead you to Merkinch local nature reserve (don’t hesitate to ask us for directions).

A lovely place to take some fresh air from the sea and observe the wildlife…A stunning sunset or sunrise could be the cherry on the cake if you’re lucky enough.

Also, if you wish to continue your journey a little further, it’s possible to continue via a wee path along the sea and reach the Caledonian canal then keep walking straight up via residential area all the way to the forest named Craig Phadrig where a stunning view will be awaiting you…
