Ive been wanting to visit here for a long time although it wasnt what I expected. It's mainly holiday let's and as it was sunday the visitors centre was closed and theres no info outside about it that we could see. The views are amazing but theres not much to do here and you you have to keep quiet while walking through incase you disturb the residents.

A great experience, we stayed in Taigh Glas, very comfortable, high ceilings, thick stone walls. Atmospheric early morning and late at night when there were no visitors. Lovely sunset from the hill overlooking the bay.

We went here on a Sunday and the shop etc was closed but you could just walk through the wee village which was nice to see and something different . It takes you to a beach and there are some nice walks/ viewing points if you walk up the hill. There is free parking as well.

Great hostel, interesting buildings and in a beautiful location. Mairi (the manager?) is a star, who kindly drove us to and from the Dounes Braes Hotel for our evening meal so we didn't have to cycle , as well as providing an early breakfast with her colleagues. A great experience all round.
