Half Day Land-Based Wildlife Tour

Our home of Stornoway provides a fantastic base for exploring local hotspots for some of the most iconic wildlife in the British Isles, so this 3 - 4 hour minibus tour is a great 'must-do' adventure to include in your holiday on the Isle of Lewis.

 

This wonderful island offers us the opportunity to take you on an adventure to discover a wide variety of wildlife that is abundant here. With the potential for spotting white-tailed and golden eagle, hen harrier and merlin, or spotting marine life from stunning, elevated positions - there is something for everyone, not forgetting the beautiful flora that can be observed.

From land, there is a huge expanse of ocean to scan for the abundance of wonderful marine life the Minch has to offer. Minke whale, common, Risso’s and white-beaked dolphins plus harbour porpoise and seals are just some of the species that can be regularly seen. But the abundance of seabirds will also get everyone excited, with the chance of seeing fulmar, kittiwakes and auks, gannets diving for fish and red-throated divers calling as they fly to and from their nesting lochs inland.

A 3 to 4 hour minibus tour of some of our special wildlife viewing spots on the Isle of Lewis with one of our experienced guides to help you spot the species. While we can't control the wildlife you will see, we know some of the best spots to give us good chances of seeing species like white tailed and golden eagles, hen harriers, golden plover, divers, seabirds and even possibly some cetaceans and seals from the shore also. The one thing we can guarantee is every day will be different and you just never know what surprises might be in store!
