Places to see, things to do

Nestled on the outskirts of New Byth and surrounded by natural beauty there's lots of outdoor activities, accessible right outside your door.


You have it all here.  There's everything from castles, full of history, to beautiful beaches - and of course some fantastic restaurants (or take aways if you're taking a break from cooking) in the area.


We're close to the Whisky Trail and there's an abundance of golf courses, all within an easy drive.


Be sure to take advantage of the outdoor activities, including:

  • Hiking
  • Boating
  • Fishing
  • Mountain biking
  • Mountain climbing
  • Forest Walks
