we ( 6 adults and one toddler ) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in allihies lodge .... the accommodation was spacious clean warm and comfortable ,with terrific views from every window . the village was within easy walking distance , the beach 40 mins walking, the copper mine routes 10 minutes . We will return for more . All other walking routes were arrived at by car . What we liked best was leaving our cars and walking out the front door for our walks and attending Dzoghoen meditation centre The beach whilst stunning is a bit treacherous for swimming due to its very steep water entry .
