Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
It's very important that guests acknowledge that the path leading from the carpark as well as the paths around the island are very rocky and slippery. Unfortunately, the island is inaccessible to those with mobility difficulties. High grip shoes are highly recommended. Paths are not lit after dark and torches are essential. The steps are steep up to the car park and require a good level of fitness.

Beliggenhet

Badachro, Skottland, Storbritannia

Dry Island sits in the tranquil waters of Gair Loch (literally "short loch") where the Mackenzies have lived, fished and farmed since the 15th Century. Dry Island's current owner, Ian McWhinney is a descendent of the Mackenzies and still fishes for shellfish from the Island. He is very happy to take visitors out to harvest langoustines, crabs and squat lobsters from his creels.

Warm Gulf Stream waters make for a temperate climate which attracts plentiful wildlife, including seabirds, otters and whales which feast on the seasonal bounty of the sea. The loch is circled to the south by the dramatic Torridon Mountains including the 3300ft high Beinn Alligin and Slioch (3215ft), one of Scotland's finest mountains.

Inverness is the nearest city to Dry Island and is approximately 90 minutes drive away. Across the sea is Skye, the Isle of Rona and the Inner Hebrides and boat trips to the islands can be booked during your stay. The village of Badachro on the shores of Gair Loch has a fine pub with a restaurant in which to dine and relax after a day in the hills.

However you want to relax and unwind, Dry Island has so much to offer.
