Native woodland has been re-established by the Knoydart Forest Trust, a local charity, and they have created some beautiful marked woodland walks and paths where plants and woodlife flourish. A new mountain bike track using natural materials has been created for the more adventurous.
The village is home to The Old Forge, mainland Britain's remotest pub which has won awards and accolades for its seafood, music and real ales. Awarded Best Independent Pub in Scotland 2009 and Highly commended by the Seafood Awards London 2009/10. Fresh creel caught langoustines are landed daily.

Our local pub serves fresh slow cooked homemade food, the menu changes daily with wild Knoydart wood Sorrel, Knoydart wild mushrooms, seafood platters, fresh mussels, estate venison and locally reared organic lamb on a daily changing menu to reflect the seasons. Musical instruments line the walls as impromptu ceilidhs are the norm here, especially since we dint have mobile reception or terrestrial television on Knoydart.
