A thriving marina is in the sheltered inner part of Tarbert harbour and scenic inshore sailing is available in surrounding sea lochs and the Kyles of Bute. From Tarbert there is a short Ferry Ride to Portavadie which has a new Marina with 2 beautique restaurants and spa centre with indoor and outdoor heated infinity pool. The Crinan canal that connects Loch Fyne at Ardrishaig with Loch Crinan to Mull and on to the Hebrides are always active with craft moving back and forth.

As with most parts of Scotland one is never too far from a golf course and there are challenging courses at both Lochgilphead and Tarbert. Machrihanish links golf course offers one of the top golfing destinations in the UK and attracts international golfers.

The Bird watching opposite the cottage is excellent as is the sea fishing from shore and from boat.

The countryside is a delight in which to walk or cycle and there is no shortage of scenic routes and places of archaeological and historical interest to visit. The Kintyre Way is a waymarked footpath through the Kintyre peninsula. It runs from Tarbert in the north crossing Kintyre to the famous Mull of Kintyre. The way is 161 kilometres long, and is fully waymarked. Additionally there are distance markers at 1 mile intervals along the route. The route is primarily intended for walkers, but most sections can also be cycled.

The beaches and coastal waters offers multiple water leisure facilities with both surfing and inshore sea kayaking proving very popular.
