To the west are dramatic mountains and a beautiful coastline, while to the east the fertile land is bounded by wide sandy beaches and rugged moorland. This outstanding landscape provides wonderful opportunities for sport and leisure, including golf at championship courses, sailing, mountain climbing and world-class shooting, fishing and stalking.
