The lodge is located midway between two villages each with a well-stocked shop. Several restaurants are located nearby as well as the outstanding and nationally acclaimed Ninth Wave Seafood restaurant just over two miles away. And a bit farther down the road at the village of Fionnphort is the ferry to the historic Isle of Iona.
From Iona there are daily boats trips to the incredible Isle of Staffa where seabirds abound, sea eagles have been sighted and friendly puffins fearlessly mix with visitors. Made entirely of hexagonally jointed basalt columns, Staffa is uninhabited and belongs to the National Trust for Scotland. Fingal’s Cave, an enormous sea cave, inspired the composer Mendelssohn to write his famous Hebrides Overture because of its large size and naturally arched roof and the eerie sounds produced by the echoes of the waves.
