The area is an excellent base for outdoor pursuits with many coastal and mountain walks, climbing and water sports which also provide the opportunity to spot a host of local wildlife, and nearby is the local riding stables to cater for those with equestrian interest. Ratagan has an excellent community spirit which is evidenced by the excellent use and support for their ‘own’ swimming pool which was established as a village initiative.
