Mull Wildlife

With its diverse landscape of mountains, sea lochs, moorland and peatbog, the Isle of Mull is home to a wide range of mammals and birds and has established itself as one of the UK’s top wildlife destinations.

Mull is a paradise for birdwatchers and one of the best places in the country to see big raptors such as the Golden Eagle and White Tailed Sea Eagle. The scarce Black Throated Diver and the noisy Red Throated Diver can be spotted on sea lochs and on our boat trip to the Treshnish Isles we will see a multitude of seabirds such as Puffins, Guillemots, Razorbills and Kittiwakes.

Due to the tidal currents and warm waters of the Gulf Stream, this is one of the most important habitats in Europe for dolphins, porpoises and whales – almost a third of the world’s species of cetaceans have been spotted here. In the course of our cruise in the waters around Mull there is every chance that we shall see some of these elusive and mysterious mammals, as well as the huge but harmless basking sharks which have been seen in increasing numbers recently.

Otters, seals and red deer are just some of the other animals we will see during our time on the island and in the course of our Wildlife Walk a local guide will teach us where and how to look for them.
