WILDLIFE ON SKYE

We are based just off the inner Hebridean sea, these grade A waters, that lead out to the Atlantic ocean and up to the Artic circle is full of nutrient rich plankton, fish and other small foods such as krill. This passageway is used by migratory routes up to the Artic for the summer months where young humpback whales, minke whales and basking shark like to feed. Whilst also providing great fishing for you and Dolphins and seals!

Skye has an incredibly diverse amount of wildlife around its shores. With regular sightings of Minke Whales, humpback whales, Orcas and to the local pods of Dolphins. We’ve seen pods of Dolphins as large as 50+ around our shores.

With sea birds were extremely fortunate, around 60% of Europe’s Gannets found in Scotland alone and many different species such as Cormorants, Fulmars, Great Skua, Guillemots and Atlantic Puffins. With Loch Bracadale hosting larger birds of pray such as Golden and Sea Eagles that nest along the high cliffs of Talisker and Idrigill point.

Seals are located just off Idrigill point on a small set of islands called the An Dubh-Sgeir. With the large colony here, there’s plenty of opportunity to see them in and out the water!
