Activities


Knoydart is famous for its rugged hills and glens. Some people like to just head off into the wilderness and do their own thing but you may prefer to take advantage of the purpose made mountain-bike tracks, or hire The Knoydart Foundation Ranger Service for an informative guided walk. Check out some of the options below.

  • Wild Knoydart Experience Accompany the Knoydart Ranger or Stalker on photostalking expeditions, exploration of local beaches and caves, or maybe just wander down to remote Doune. They can tailor-make trips for those who want to see a bit more of Knoydart.

  • Scheduled Walks   Every Wednesday at 11.30 the Knoydart Ranger heads out on foot or by Landrover for a 2½ hour tour. The timetable changes every week. Costs are around £5-£10 for adults - kids go free (or +£5 if a Landrover is involved). Book ahead by contacting the Ranger

  • Deer Stalking   Help the Knoydart Foundation achieve its conservation aims by partaking in a day's stalking. Stalking operations are run in a traditional manner with stalking ponies used to carry carcasses off the hill. The Foundation also sells the resulting venison locally.

  • Pony Trekking  Located just opposite the Foundation Bunkhouse, Knoydart Pony Trekking cater for small groups of three or four riders. Ring them up on 01687 462830
  • Mountain Biking   Bring your own bikes over on the boat and have a great time exploring our tracks and paths. Knoydart Forest Trust has created an exciting Red route in the forest, with a smaller Blue technical skills loop  - both immediately behind Inverie village.

    There's also 8 miles of steeply undulating tarmac road round to the coastal hamlet of Airor with fabulous views along the way. Or head east for 5 miles along rough landrover tracks in to the wild heart of Knoydart.

  • Boat trips    There are many boat owners based in Inverie, and all of them - as well as running between Mallaig and Inverie - go elsewhere. Between them they offer everything from a lazy afternoon's sea-fishing, to a trip to the small isles, Skye or Kinlochhourn, to a cetacean-spotting afternoon with dolphins and whales (if you're lucky). Ring up each operator for a quote.
Great places to eat!

The world famous Old Forge Inn is just a few doors along the waterfront.

The Tearoom & Pottery Shop is closer still - open for dinner 3 evenings a week for delicious homemade meals, and every day for reasonably priced snacks and lunches.
