Take your pick of tranquil walks on a wooded isle, or down to the lochshore in search of a fishing osprey. Listen out for the distinctive call of winter visiting geese flying overhead in their constantly changing formations or watch the peaceful paddling of wigeon, teal and shelduck. On Inchcailloch island, a springtime carpet of wildflowers await, whilst insect-eating birds dart from tree to tree and a fallow deer watches in reproachful silence.
