Transport is provided from the Ferry Terminal at Craignure, through the Loch Na Keal designated National Scenic Area (NSA) to join our trips from Ulva Ferry. Keep an eye out for otters in the loch and both Golden and Sea Eagles as you skirt the loch across from Mull’s largest mountain and only Munro, Ben More.
The allure and fascination of uninhabited isles, the mystique of ancient forts, ruins of a 7 centuries old chapel (the Iona connection), and a conglomeration of thousands of seabirds including puffins so tame you’ll go cross eyed, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes, fulmars, shags, skuas – the list goes on – to satisfy even the most obsessive bird enthusiast, – and as we cruise through the many tiny islets and rocks which comprise the Treshnish Isles, you will be scrutinised closely by Common and Atlantic Grey Seals. On our daily visit to these incomparable islands, we spend time ashore on Lunga, the main bird sanctuary.
On most days from late April to the first week in August – (the main breeding period), you will have 2 hours in which to study, photograph, commune and be generally entertained by the antics of our unique feathered wildlife.
De-stress on the Treshnish Isles with some puffin Therapy and commune with the many other birds, common and grey seals. 2hrs ashore.
Staffa – visit Fingal’s Cave and follow in many famous footsteps. Imagine you can hear the first few bars of Mendelssohn’s Overture in the eternal surge of the sea. 1hr ashore.
