The mountainous Isle of Rum has outstanding opportunities for observing wildlife in its natural environment. The island boasts one of the largest Manx Shearwater colonies in the world and was the site of an ambitious white-tailed eagle reintroduction program and is home to 900 red deer, some of which are the focus of a long running research project, based at Kilmory. In Kinloch, wildlife watching opportunities occur, in the most part, when least expecting them. Golden and white-tailed eagles are regularly seen soaring over Loch Scresort and otters can be seen at play at the ferry terminal as the boat manoeuvres in the bay. In spring, Eider ducks coo along the shore and birdsong rings out in the woodland.
It is well worth enjoying a meandering walk along the coastline of Loch Scresort, the island’s only proper anchorage; to see what island wildlife you can spot. The island wildlife Rangers will give advice on what is about and where you might stand the best chance of a sighting. There are hides, which anyone can use for otter spotting, close to the ferry pier.
