It has a boat on it that has been made suitable for disabled access, changeable for left and right handed use and with the option to sit astride rather than only forward or back facing.
You can go on from here to Loch nah-Innse Fraoich which is nearby. It also makes an excellent spot for families, with toilet facilities at each loch and easily accessed.
