Peinachorran is part of a township called The Braes, historically famous following the battle over land there during the 19th century.

Climbing, walking and sight-seeing are all available on the doorstep. Wildlife is all around you. From the Sun-room you can watch seals laze on a rock at the water's edge. When you are out, always keep an eye out for a glimpse of an otter, a golden eagle, or even a sea eagle.
