The village is situated in Glenelg bay The area has much to offer, stunning Highland scenery, diverse sea and wildlife, Glenelg bay faces across to the Isle of Skye and down the Sound of Sleat with fabulous views to the Sandaig Islands, Isle Ornsay, Rum and Eigg.

This area offers varied walking with villages such as Plockton as well as the region's main town at Kyle of Lochalsh. Across the dramatic Mam Ratagan pass is the remote and secluded Glenelg peninsula, a tranquil and peaceful haven far from busy routes. There has been a car ferry service crossing the Kylerhea straits since 1934. However, the closest point to the Isle of Skye has been a crossing point for hundreds of years. The Kylerhea ferry is reached on the mainland side by a ten mile road that leaves the main A87 at Shiel Bridge.

The narrow rough and hilly coast road from Glenelg around the outer Loch Hourn to Arnisdale has fine views across to Skye and Rum In the aftermath of the 1715 Jacobite uprising the Government built barracks at four locations across the Highlands, with the best known at Ruthven, and Bernera Barracks it completed in 1723 at Glenelg is very similar to Ruthven, designed to provide defence against light attack and a secure base from which troops could patrol the surrounding area this is part of general wades military road and Barracks over the Mam Ratagan to Glen Shiel, parts of which are still in use today.

There are the three brochs that lie inland along Gleann Beag. The largest of these is Dun Telve or the Lower Broch, the best preserved broch in mainland Scotland, with an external wall that still stands 10m in height and nearby is Dun Troddan or the Upper Broch. There are plenty of types of accommodation here from Bed and Breakfast, Hotels, Hostels, and self catering to try, access to Glenelg by road is via Bealach pass Ratagain from the Shiel Bride on the main road from Inverness via A87 and A82.
