Loch Eil Outward Bound

Loch Eil (Loch Iall) Outward Bound station was built by groups of apprentices from British Rail as part of their programme and opened in 1985 to serve the adjacent Loch Eil Centre. The centre is located above the loch in a former shooting lodge and offers a wide range of outdoor adventure activities and skills training in walking, climbing and canoeing.
