Ardnish is the peninsula immediately opposite the cottage, on the other side of Breakish inlet. A new bridge has recently been built at the western end of Lower Breakish, and a path has also been made so that it’s now a fairly easy walk down to the water, across the bridge, and all the way to Waterloo road which connects with Broadford and the A87.

It’s an amazing place to spot wildlife, being a regular landing point for migrating flocks, and is often frequented by otters and seals. Ardnish is also a popular destination for fossil hunters, as the bedrock is home to devils toenails, bivalves and even huge ammonites. For more information go to
