An t'Obbe (referred to locally as The Obe) is a tidal inlet to the south of the Village that provides an excellent haven for waterbirds and wildlife alike.
All manner of birds such as Herons, Oystercatchers, Dippers and Geese may be found here, as can Otters and Deer in the dusk and early morning, indeed it could be said that the Birch woodlands on the banks of An t'Obbe have been breeding grounds for all manner of life over the years!
Tempting as it may appear (at low tide) the green swathes of grass (sea turf) adjacent to the water may seem an ideal place to camp for the night. Being tidal, the green bits disappear twice a day!
The Forestry Commission have existing proposals, for which outline Planning Permission has already been obtained, to extend the Footpath Network from Hill of the Fox down to a crossing point over An t'Obbe by way of a timber construction pedestrian bridge.
KEG have taken over this Project, which will ensure easier access into the Kyleakin Forest footpath network.
Funding Applications are in place. Watch This Space!
