The 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, 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 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.
