White-tailed and Golden Eagles can regularly be seen soaring over the hills opposite and frequently over the loch in front of the house. The beautiful sweeping sandy Hosta Beach (Traigh Stir) is a 5 min walk from the house. The surrounding machair is a haven for flowers, wildlife, bees, butterflies and corncrakes.
