Glenelg and Area

Tigh-na-Camus is perfect for any age group, either as an ideal base from which to tour the West Highlands, the Isle of Skye, Applecross and Inverness or just breathe the clean, unpolluted air of the Western Highlands and recharge your batteries. Take a stroll through the village of Glenelg and discover the history of it and the immediate surrounding area.  For example did you know, that Glenelg is twinned with Glenelg on the planet Mars - see here

Glenelg is an unique & multi-faceted area, with sandy beaches to explore, excellent walking opportunities everywhere and mountains to climb for the more adventurous & fitter of us. Bicycle hire for adults and children is also available in the village. This area lends itself to photography and painting and watching wildlife as otters and seals frequent this unspoilt area. Sea fishing is also very popular here, either directly from the public pier or from the rocky shore or by boat. Permit for river fishing can be bought from the local shop for salmon and brown trout. Cost approximately 10 per day. Sea Eagles are regularly seen over the Bay and the Glenelg Ferry. Take a walk over the hills and you may well see the indigenous red deer!

The Glenelg-Skye Ferry is the world's last sea-going, manually-operated, turntable ferry and runs from Easter to October. The ferry has crossed the Kylerhea Straits since 1934 and has recently been in the news:
