The Kyle Line.  The Great Highland Railway Journey.  The return trip from Kyle to Strathcarron along the shores of Lochcarron is a stunning one - possibly one of the best in the country. have details about many walks within the Kyle of Lochalsh area.  These two are both fairly short and are within walking distancee of the Signal Box.

A short walk to the little visited and extremely peaceful freshwater Loch Scalpaidh. The path is fairly clear but there is a steep climb intially, and the route through some of the woods is very boggy. Full details on the Walk Highlands website.

This short walk to Cnoc a'Mhadaidh Ruaidh climbs through mixed woodland above the edge of Kyleakin and gives good views along the eastern coastline of Skye.  Clear footpaths through the woods; the return route is rocky in places.  Full details on the Walk Highlands website.

Seaprobe Atlantis offers an experience no other boat can match.  Enjoy all the scenery and wildlife above and below the waves as you cruise in complete safety with the best wildlife guides in Lochalsh.  Our huge underwater viewing gallery is easily accessed, with good, strong handrails, staggered landings, and non-slip steps. Once underwater, full head-height, bench seating, and large windows allow you to explore the underwater world in comfort. Drift through kelp forests equal in beauty and sheer diversity to any coral reef, and marvel at the rich variety of marine life in this Special Area of Conservation.

As one of the most iconic images of Scotland, Eilean Donan Castle is recognised all around the world. Situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by some majestic scenery, it is little wonder that the castle is now one of the most visited and important attractions in the Scottish highlands.
