Try our wildlife tour

Exploring the loch by canoe provides the perfect viewing platform for wildlife, moving in relative silence we are not a disturbance enabling us to get up close to birdlife and marine inhabitants. On our travels so far we have seen guillemots, oyster catchers, curlews, gannets, eider ducks, kingfishers, common and grey seals and eagles. On one trip we even caught the whiff of a whale!

Thanks Iain - we had a great afternoon out on the loch with visiting family. The highlight were the seals.
