Happy Easter to all our lovely guests!  Just four weeks to go until the start of our cruising season, and we’ve already had some great reports of wildlife sightings!  Orca have been spotted in the north of the Hebrides, and we’ve seen otters playing in the loch in front of the office.

 

 

Spring is a great time for wildlife encounters, and we still have space on our early season cruises including an Outer Hebridean Explorer cruise taking in the spectacular Shiant Islands, to see the huge seabird colonies there. The Shiant islands are very special and we don’t often get the opportunity to visit, so why not join us on 30th April for this special cruise.

DID YOU KNOW?

Atlantic puffins have penguin-like colouring but they sport a colourful beak that has led some to dub them the "sea parrot". The beak fades to a drab grey during the winter and blooms with colour again in the spring.
