Isle of Mull Wildlife

The Isle of Mull is a must visit destination for wildlife enthusiasts

The Isle of Mull is home to a rich flora and fauna. It’s one of the best places to see otters in the UK, we have even seen otter on the lawn at Penmore !  special birds here include hen harrier, red kite, occasional osprey. White-tailed are now pretty common and golden eagles less so. Look out for red-throated divers. Red deer are common, expect to see 30 – 40 on and evening drive home. There are fallow deer. Grey and common seals and a rich marine life occasional sighting of orca more common minke There are basking shark in the summer months. Plenty to draw in the keen naturalist.
