Located to the south east of Tobermory, Aros is a former private estate that is now owned by the Forestry Commission after several previous private owners who both developed and eventually abandoned it.
Aros House no longer stands, but the extensive grounds together with a few remaining buildings can still be seen.
The old Estate pier is still present with a splendid view of Tobermory across the bay.
Lochan à Ghurrabain is a splendid freshwater lochan with a peaceful walk around its shores.
