If you are more in for a gentle village stroll... no problem neither. There are a lot of nice walks around the village. From the cottage you can go on a gentle walk to Iron Age brochs, on the beach to spot some seals and otters or across the fields to the ruins of barracks.
Hill walking to Ardintoul, Arnisdale, Sandaig (known from 'Ring of Bright Water' - the famous book by Gavin Maxwell) and many more. Ordnance Survey maps of the area are available in the cottage.

In the Glenelg Bike Shed you can rent bicycles (100 meter from the cottage), in and around the village it is quite flat but you have some though hills as well, to find out try The Ratagan Pass.
