Wildlife

 


If your interest is Wildlife, there are numerous birds in the area. Take a walk through the woods and hear the drumming of the woodpecker or the call of the cuckoo in early summer.

Sitting on the rocks down at the waters' edge at dusk, you may hear the haunting sounds of the eider duck while watching the seals fishing in the bay and perhaps be lucky enough to see the shy otters. Roe deers and pine martens have also been seen nearby.

 

You can visit some of the local wildlife attractions such as the Scottish Seal Sanctuary on the A828, south of Port Appin, the Oban Zoological World (monkeys, meerkats, snakes, wallabies, kookaburras, lemurs, lizards, pudu deer, bush dog, kinkajous and loads more) - one mile south of Oban 01631 562 481 , or try a Sea.fari Adventure 16 miles from Oban in the picturesque village of Easdale on the Island of Seil (reached by crossing the famous 'Bridge over the Atlantic'!)
