A Grand Day Out

Not to the moon with Wallace and Gromit, but equally, a day to remember!

If you are perhaps wondering whether the ferry ride to Knoydart is worth the cost and effort and if there will be enough to occupy you then maybe we can give you a flavour of what a day out could entail. A day out amongst some of the most magnificent scenery in Scotland.

Knoydart has so much to offer you cannot see it all in one day, but with the help of an e-bike you can travel well beyond the confines of Inverie and sample the stunning mountains and beaches.

So, are you looking for that grand day out? A day full of magnificent scenery? Of far reaching views of Skye and the Islands?
Look no further! Here's an example of what you can do:
Catch the 10.15 ferry from Mallaig.

Lots to see on the 30 minute cruise. Don't miss the Fisherman and Child Statue as you leave the harbour, or Plastic Mary, as you approach Inverie.
And keep a close eye out for dolphins. They can't be guaranteed but if you are lucky enough to spot them it's a memory you will treasure. 
Be met at the pier with your e-bikes ready and waiting or take a leisurely 20 minute stroll through the village and Knoydart's rainforest (yes, they aren't just in the Amazon!) to our base.
Collect your e-bikes and helmet, (We will give you full instructions if you have never ridden one before)

and off you go!
An easy (on an e-bike!) 40 minute ride to Sandaig beach to enjoy the stunning scenery and tranquillity.
Then if you've worked up an appetite, while there have tea and cake at Roland's, followed by a leisurely return journey to Inverie.
Back in the village you have ample time to explore and visit the shop with gifts and souvenirs galore.
Then to the The Old Forge. You mustn't miss the pub! Mainland Britain's remotest and community owned., Enjoy a well deserved pint or two and a delicious meal or snack.
Alternatively, you could visit the Knoydart Pottery and Tearoom for scrummy icecream and cakes while browsing their range of gifts
Or if you have a little more time pay a visit to The Lookout, Knoydart's very own Steak and Seafood Bistro
Finally, back to the pier, where you can leave your e-bike and catch the 4.15 back to Mallaig.

That is just one example. You can travel into the Wilderness, go to the Black lock, see Lord Brockett's Folly, or if you have more time, Falloch Falls, or
from Sandaig continue out to Airor. Stroll around the beaches, have a swim in the crystal clear waters of the Sound of Sleat or watch the seals and sea otters on Airor Island, still with ample time to have that drink back at the Old Forge and catch the
6.30 pm ferry back to Mallaig

Don't put it off - Book your e-bikes now for that Grand Day Out
