Beinn Lora – Benderloch

Walking up Beinn Lora there are two fairly steep paths (starting from Benderloch village) which have rough surfaces in places, leading up through the forest to give excellent panoramic views to the west over the sea and islands.

Scottish Sealife Sanctuary – Barcaline

This is the home to a spectacular aquarium as well as Scotland’s only working Seal Hospital. Nowadays it rescues up to 20 seal pups. Once pups are well enough to return to the wild they are released, or the staff provide a new home at the Sanctuary.
