There are a number of mountains in the area - including Suilven, Canisp, Quinag and Ben Mor Assynt - which are a great attraction to hill walkers and hikers (please check the mountain walks and local walks pages for more information).  Also, if you like fishing you can purchase a permit for the local lochs in a number of the local shops, or take your chances from the rocks to catch mainly pollock, though there are sometimes some mackerel.
