BESPOKE SAFARIS

Listed below are examples of the bespoke safaris we run around the Loch Ewe area. We run our bespoke safaris on a day and time to suit you, and they are charged at a flat rate of £35 per hour. We normally limit the numbers to 6 people per safari.

 

If you would like to book a bespoke safari, please contact us. Alternatively, have a look at our scheduled safaris to see if there is one running that might interest you.

Our safaris are suitable for adults and children aged 8+ and are aimed from complete beginners to keen wildlife watchers. We have binoculars that we can lend you if you don't have your own. 

How To Watch Wild Otters

One of the questions we get asked most often is "where can I see an otter"? In this one-hour workshop we will give you all the guidance you need to give you the best chance of spotting a wild otter (and lots of other wildlife) for yourself. We probably won't see otters on the workshop itself (unless we're very lucky!) but check out our Tripadvisor reviews to read of previous guests who have successfully seen otters in the days following the workshop using their new otter-spotting skills.

Duration: 1 hour.   Cost: £35 for up to 6 people

The Lighthouse Headland

Rua Reidh Lighthouse is at the very tip of the Inverasdale peninsula, looking out onto the Minch and the Atlantic. We'll do a circuit of the headland, looking out for seabirds such as gannets, puffins and shags, and in season try to spot whales, dolphins and basking sharks from the shore. On the moorland we'll explore the biodiversity of the blanket bog and the fascinating species that live there. The walk is about 3 miles and will take around 3 hours allowing us plenty of time to stop and observe.
