3 HOUR CORRYVRECKAN AND WILDLIFE TRIPS Sail down Loch Craignish and on to the North end of Scarba, if conditions permit go through the Grey Dogs, round the West side of Scarba and in to the Gulf of Corryvreckan.

Look out for seals, deer, otter, sea eagles, golden eagles and other birds of prey, porpoise, and if really lucky dolphin, basking shark, and minke whale. This Special Area of Conservation is a wildlife feeding hot spot so numerous sea birds come to feed in the rich waters. Check out the maelstrom area then in to Pig bay to put the kettle on, continue round the North end of Jura past a sea eagle's nest and a seal colony then return to Ardfern taking in the historic Islands in Loch Craignish. The exact route of this trip will depend on weather and recent wildlife sitings.
