Wildlife Tour

For lovers of
Nature and wildlife
Image representing Wildlife Tour

Grab your binoculars for an incredible wildlife cruise. Once on Mull, you'll sail from Fionnphort for Staffa. The first stop is the Isle of Lunga. Its population left in the mid nineteenth century, but its wildlife is thriving. Lunga hosts breeding Guillemot, Razorbills and Puffins, so your binoculars will be put to good use.

From here, you'll continue to Staffa - famous for its natural rock phenomenon of basalt pillars - the famous Fingal's cave, and of course its colony of puffins. The final stop on the trip is ancient Iona where you might seek out the elusive Corncrake amongst its tranquil surroundings. 

Please note that on Sundays and Mondays this tour does not visit Iona due to the later departure from Oban.

In association with West Coast Tours and Staffa Tours.
