Seen an otter lately?


This otter is easy to spot at the head of Loch Goil. Always a welcome sight as you head for the Shore House Inn. A bit too wooden to have made it in to the new Argyll’s Wildlife Guide which gives info on where to go and look for the real thing.

Did you know?

✓ The Rest and be Thankful is the best place nearby to look for Golden Eagles? An authoritative raptor lady living in Cowal says it is – and that’s good enough for me.

✓ Osprey visit Loch Eck.

✓ You can take an RSPB Cruise with Cruise Loch Lomond from Tarbet.

✓ You can make it all the way to see the puffins on Lunga as a day trip from Lochgoilhead.
