There are a number of way-marked walks and tracks on Ulva that have been set up to help you to explore the island. You can also bring a bike across, though be aware that there are no tarmac roads on Ulva so a mountain bike would be advisable. Sheila's Cottage is well worth a visit.
This faithful reconstruction of a traditional thatched croft house which was last lived in early this century by Sheila MacFadyen, gives a fascinating insight into the island's history. The Boathouse, a licensed tearoom, specialises in fresh local shellfish landed from the family fishing boat, and home baking. They also serve a selection of homemade soups, rolls and daily specials. It's a fabulously scenic spot. The ferry to Ulva runs on demand - summon it by uncovering the red panel at the ferry station.
