From the cottages and in the local area

Watch seals playing in the bay, see many wading birds feeding, cormorants fishing and maybe an otter. You may also be lucky enough to see pine martens and porpoises.  You can book  wildlife cruises from Gairloch that often see minke whales, basking sharks, dolphins, porpoises, otters and sea eagles.

Oyster catchers, curlew and greylag geese feed at the end of the garden as well as deer. A huge variety of garden birds frequent our feeders in the garden.

Take a look at a few wildlife photos from our wildlife gallery. 

Further afield

At Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve there are excellent mountain and woodland trails with the opportunity to see golden and sea eagles, mountain hare, pine marten, ptarmigan, deer and Scottish crossbills amongst other wildlife.

Breeding pairs of White tailed sea eagles can be seen on Shieldaig Island, Torridon and more locally on Loch Maree.

Wester Ross offers the visitor outstanding opportunities for wildlife spotting.
