Glengorm Wildlife Project
This content is temporarily suspended, but it is hoped to start again sometime in the future. The ideas though are good and worth looking at
Here at Glengorm, we want you to enjoy being immersed in our landscape and so have made the job easy for you by providing guided walks, activities and events to help you get the most out of your visit.
With over 5,000 acres of estate to explore, our ranger is on hand to offer daily guided walks to take you to the best wildlife spots on Glengorm. Glengorm Estate overlooks the Atlantic from the northern tip of Mull, offering stunning views out to the islands of Coll, Rum and even the Outer Hebrides on a clear day. The Estate and it's coastline are rich in archaeology and wildlife, boasting all of Mull’s charismatic species with the addition of several rarities.
Our guided walks are taken at a relaxed pace with frequent stops to look at wildlife or scenery. Because of our bespoke service, your walk is tailored to suit your schedule. There’s no rush to ‘fit everything in’ – if you see something special, you can stay and watch it for as long as you like.
See our calendar to find out what scheduled walks are already planned or book your walk at a time to suit you.

Glengorm Castle is a B&B run by the Nelson family who have owned the castle and estate since the 1970’s. The Nelson’s strive to achieve the balance between farming and conservation and, as a result, founded the Glengorm Wildlife Project in 2013. The Glengorm Wildlife Project is a drive to improve knowledge of the estate’s natural heritage to better aid conservation management. By sharing their findings and passion with guests on guided walks, events and activities, they hope to engage people with nature and help safeguard the future of our wild places.
