There is so much to offer in this area . Sunnyside has lots of local information and maps/guide books for sale in site shop. Our covered seating area also has a large Ordnance Survey Map of the area including all of the Small Isles.
A fantastic way to explore the spectacular scenery and wildlife this area has to offer is to choose to go on a guided sea kayak trip. We are fortunate to have professionals based localy in Arisaig and Glen Uig. Kayaks for hire also.
Hiking for all levels of experience.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights,in a motorhome/ camper a stunning site with direct access , 1 minute walk to beach, with beautifully clear water coves , which are safe to swim and kayak.golden sand and views to the near by islands.the facilities are clean and modern with excellent showers and a covered outside eating area.
The owners could not be nicer very welcoming, nothing to much trouble, would highly recommend this site.
