The question we get asked most….
Are there any eagles here?
The truthful answer is YES, definitely, and across the season we often see them. One of the ways to spot them is to look for the hooded crows that always seem to follow them around harassing the big raptors, buzzards, white tails or golden, the crows just wont leave them alone.
There are two ways to increase your chances of a spot..one is to take a boat trip, especially the boats that head out into the Minch, and the other is to head over to the Falconry Centre at Shieldaig Lodge that keep, among other things, Harris Hawks and more. Oh, and a fine selection of whiskies and gins!
