Outdoor Activities

Walking and Hiking

The area is superb for walking. You can enjoy a gentle stroll along the shore in front of Seabank or wander through our grounds to the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Reserve which is a great place to look for wildlife.

Enjoy walking on the sand at Tralee beach or follow the trails on Ben Lora for rewarding, panoramic views over the Firth of Lorn, followed by coffee and cakes at the Ben Lora Cafe in Benderloch village, just 2 miles from Seabank.

For the experienced hill walker there are many Munros within short driving distance from Seabank including Beinn Fhionnlaidh at Glen Creran or the highest mountain in Argyll, Ben Cruachan. The rugged beauty of Glencoe and the highest mountain in the UK, Ben Nevis, is all within an hours drive.

Detailed information on walks to suit all abilities is available at Walkhighlands. For local outdoor activity information and events, see Adventure Oban.
