Take a boat trip to see wildlife with Sealife Adventures from their base in Clachan Sound, or with Sea-Fari Adventures on their fast RIBs from Ellenabeich.

Take the ferry to Easdale Island and learn about its slate quarrying history. Visit the Easdale Island Folk Museum and Puffer Bar.

If you are here in the last week in September then you could attend the World Stone-Skimming Championships, held on Easdale Island in one of the flooded quarries.

Visit Luing, the island to the South of Seil. Take the five minute ferry ride across Cuan Sound and enjoy pectacular walking round our neighbouring island.

Visit our local gardens - Ardmaddy Castle and An Cala (at Ellenbeich) are both open to the public in season.

Seil's 9-hole course is right behind the house and presents some unusual challenges. If you fancy something a bit more strenuous horse riding and kayaking are also available nearby.

Oban has a small beach at Ganavan, to the north of the town. If you want bigger beaches we recommend heading for the Isles. Oban is the ferry port for many of the Western Isles. For Iona, take the ferry to Mull then drive or take the bus to the ferry over to Iona. As well as the historic abbey, Iona also has some nice beaches and walks, it’s a great day out. You can also take a boat trip to the island of Staffa, where the spectacular scenery inspired Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture.

Fort William, is the starting point for the Jacobite Steam Train to Mallaig. Nearby is Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain.

Inveraray on Loch Fyne is about an hour from Oban and offers has various attractions including Inveraray Castle, home of the Duke of Argyll, and Inveraray Jail.
