Had a great time fly fishing for trout. The fishing managers, Craig and Ally, were great hosts and more than happy to provide guidance on where to fish and what flies/methods to use. Will be back again some day for sure.

Came here to go quad biking and returned again for lunch and shopping. The store had an amazing variety and we did most of our gift shopping here for our Scotland trip.
