The area has a vast array of bird, plant and animal wild life, with Osprey, Mistlethrush, Pinemartin, Red Squirrel, Red and Roe Deer, wild orchids …. often seen. Walks ranging from the gentle incline along Crinan Canal to more energetic hikes up the munros of Ben Cruachan and Ben Lui, to the marked pathways of the Kintyre Way and the West Highland Way, and on the farm a walk along the shores of loch Awe, along the old drovers road passing old ruined settlements, and through forest tracks. Our quiet country roads are ideal for cycling and there is plenty of scope for mountain biking. Fishing permits can be purchased to fish Loch Awe and boats can be hired locally. Pony trekking and a climbing wall are available near Inveraray and there is a Sealife centre near Barcaldine.
