The Isle of Mull has an exciting and wide range of wildlife both on land and in the sea. Here are just a few operators offering tours and boat trips:

Isle of Mull Wildlife Expeditions
Wild about Mull
Island Encounter

Boat trips from Mull or Iona will also take you to the spectacular uninhabited island of Staffa and the Treshnish Isles which are home to thousands of sea birds, including puffins.

RSPB Reserves

There are excellent Royal Society for the Protection of Birds Reserves at Inversnaid on the shores of Loch Lomond, the Isle of Coll and Loch Gruinart and The Oa, on Islay. If you're visiting Coll or Islay also keep a close watch for their most elusive resident bird - the corncrake.

Scottish Beaver Trail

Since 2009, the responsible reintroduction of Beavers has been taking place in the Knapdale Forest in Argyll. Extinct for over 400 years, four beaver families have now successfully established themselves in this unique project. You can visit the forest and see beaver lodges and activity, as well as the possibility of catching sight of the only Beavers in the UK.
