Gallery: Around Seil Island

The Atlantic Bridge

The bridge is only 2 miles from Balvicar and Seil Cottage. All vehicles have to cross it, including the local bus service.

Right by the bridge is the excellent Tigh an Truish: a traditional pub that features in CAMRA's Good Pub Guide for its local real ales. It also serves excellent home-cooked food.

A few minutes walk from the cottage is Seil Bay, pictured here with a few working creels in the bottom right corner.
