The guide’s ability to spot and identify birds was incredible. They were also extremely knowledgeable about the local plants and history of the area. The birdwatching on this trip had some exciting highlights including Arctic Skuas harassing terns and Kittiwakes and close-ups of Short-Eared Owls.

Ardnamurchan – Wild Scotland in Spring: Friday 2 – Friday 9 June 2023, 8 days, £1445

On this single-centre holiday we shall spend 7 nights at the Glenborrodale Centre which is ideally situated on the peninsula’s southern coast. We will enjoy morning walks along Loch Sunart to look for Otters, and another enigmatic mustelid, the Pine Marten, can be enjoyed from the comfort of our living room. We shall spend the week exploring the peninsula where Golden Eagles have a healthy population as does the majestic White-tailed Eagle while Hen Harrier, Merlin and Short-eared Owl may also be seen.

During our stay we will take to the seas and a real highlight will be a full day visiting the fabulous Treshnish Islands. Puffins are the undisputed stars here and we will take a small tender to make a landing and get up close and personal to these wonderful birds. As well as all the exciting wildlife that a visit to Ardnamurchan provides the feeling of being totally cut off from the hustle and bustle of the real world is a joy in itself.

This holiday is limited to 12 places only, so please book early. The travel options are to either drive and park there for the week, or we will do an early afternoon pick up from Glasgow Paisley train station.
