The sleepy little crofting village of Melvaig is looks straight out towards the Isle of Skye, Harris, Lewis and The Shiants. It has a lovely long pebble beach where otters can be seen frolicking and searching for crabs in the kelp forest off shore.
Oran Mara is located 10 miles from the village of Gairloch. Take the ‘Road to the Lighthouse’, past Big Sands camping park, after 3 miles the road turns into a single track. Watch out for sheep, cows, red deer and the occasional otter or pine marten on the road.
Oran Mara is the second last house on the left before the hill up to the lighthouse, 27 Melvaig.
