There is a concrete slipway at the sheltered Old Dornie harbour (about 1.5 miles from Windyhill) where small boats may be launched. Boats can also be launched from the beach at Badentarbet Bay.

There are numerous walks in the area varying from the easy to the adventurous. For the energetic there is no shortage of mountains.

Nearby there are sandy beaches on Isle Ristol (which can be reached via a causeway from Old Dornie at low tide), at Achnahaird and Garvie.

Further afield, puffins and skuas on the Handa Island bird reserve, exotic plants at Inverewe Gardens, semi-precious stones and mermaids at Sandwood Bay...
