The region's appeal for outdoor enthusiasts means that there's a wide range of hostels, bunkhouses, campsites and other basic, budget accommodation, but there is also no shortage of luxurious B&Bs and country house hotels, often converted from Victorian hunting lodges.


Venison from the hills and fish from the sea contribute to the menu in many a restaurant here. Even the tearooms and cafes often have fresh local fish or shellfish available.
