About the area
Glenelg is a relaxed picturesque village, shielded by high mountains and looking out towards the sea. Its seclusion makes it a paradise for rare wildlife. Look out for pine martins and peregrine falcons inland or keep an eye on the sea for a glimpse of otters or minke whales. Glenelg has a good village shop and post office for essentials, and the famous Glenelg Inn serves delicious local produce.
Things to do
- Cosy up with a copy of Ring of Brightwater, Gavin Maxwell's book about the otter he brought back from Iraq. Maxwell wrote the book from his cottage at nearby Sandaig. The whole area is still full of the wildlife he loved.
- The Balmacara Estate is about an hour's drive away. Here you'll find acres of woodland walks as well as beautifully preserved 18th century farm steadings.
- Visit the Iron Age brochs close to the barracks, inland along Gleann Beag. These tall Pictish towers are some of the best preserved in Britain.
Take the main road to the Isle of Skye via Kyle of Lochalsh (A87). Turn off for Glenelg at Shiel Bridge. As you come into the village proper, on your right you will see a wooden gate with a sign saying ‘No Entry to Bernera Barracks' - An Gearasdan is just along this track about 100 metres. < Hide
