Scotland’s coastlines are some of the very best locations in the UK for wildlife watching. Our clean waters attract an amazing array of cetaceans so don’t be surprised to see Minke Whales, Dolphins, Orcas or Basking Sharks. Overhead the air can be teeming with Puffins, Gannets, Kittiwakes or Razorbills. We are home to some of largest sea-bird colonies in the world.

Wildlife can be all about us, but we must all act with complete respect for their best interests. Before you set sail check with conservation organisations as to best practice around wildlife and do your bit to protect this wonderful asset.
