Mull Eagle Watch

MULL EAGLE WATCH 2015

Mull Eagle Watch offers ranger-led visits to view Britain’s largest and most impressive bird of prey, the white-tailed eagle. There’s also a really good chance of seeing other wildlife including golden eagles, red deer, buzzards, hen harriers and even divers.

How do I book?

Booking is necessary.

The meeting point is just off the B8035 road in Glen Seilisdeir. You can travel via the scenic Salen route or head round from Craignure.
Please look out for green Forestry Commission signage.

Please bring…

We recommend you bring waterproofs, just in case! Midge repellent can be handy too. Bring binoculars if you have them – we have good quality telescopes for you to use.

Anything else I need to know?

The visit will include short walks on gravel tracks and time spent standing in our viewing area.
Please let us know any specific requirements you may have, and closer access can be arranged. We don’t currently have toilet facilities on site.
Well behaved dogs are welcome and we’d much rather them come to say hello than stay in your car.

We work closely with the RSPB to care for and protect the Mull Sea Eagles. You can keep up to date with what’s going on at the nest on our Mull Eagle Watch blog.
