Duror, United Kingdom

I just love Cuil Bay. It is a beautiful sandy and pebbly beach close to the magnificent mountains of Glen Coe and with views south to the Firth of Lorne and the islands of Balnagowan, Shuna and Lismore.

There are so many wonderful things to do and places to go.

I have written a blog showing all the great things to do in the area. If you do a search on 'Cuil Bay blog' you will find it.

Here's a taste of the top things to do:

Winter:
Skiing at Glencoe (30mins) and Nevis Range (35 mins)
Winter walking and climbing
Windswept Beach walk followed by swim and a sauna and a meal at the Holly Tree
Indoor Climbing and ice climbing at Kinlochleven, with cafe and soft play.
Beach walk along cycle path for amazing views of Castle Stalker then lunch at the cafe.
Walks to the dramatic Inchree Falls at Onich and a visit to the red squirrel feeding station.

Kinlochleven Seafood Restaurant
Beach games and a BBQ at Cuil Bay
