On a clear night the beams of several Scottish and Irish lighthouses can be seen guiding the ships across the North Channel. During the day you can explore local walks and look out for some of the local wildlife including deer, seals, dolphins, sea birds and if you’re lucky, a rare sight of a sea otter.
