I make the best first impression.

And once we've met, you'll always remember me.

I'm the one with the 2.5 metre wingspan, and (not to boast) when I move, I OWN the sky.

Now, we can't promise anything, but get yourself on a ranger-led trip and we'll try to be perched in some of our favourite spots.

Sometimes live cameras beam in pictures so you'll still have the best chance of finding me and some of my other friends in the forest.

While you're on Mull, why don't you join one of our local wildlife safari operators to see what else Mull & Iona can offer?

You might meet lots of other wild things too: otters catching fish, porpoises and dolphins, seals, red deer, hares and stoats… how good does that sound?

Booking is essential. Each trip lasts about two hours. Adult tickets (including RSPB members) cost £8. If you're under 16, your ticket costs £4. A family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) costs £20. If you live on Mull, it's free. Please pay the ranger on the day by cash or cheque ('Mull & Iona Community Trust'). Sorry, we don't have a card machine at the moment.

When can you see us?

Trips to see the nesting white-tailed eagles run Monday to Friday at 10am and 1.30pm.

How to find us

We're still at Glen Seilisdeir. You'll be given details of when and where to meet upon booking your place, but the rendezvous for the start of your adventure is roughly 0.5km up the Forestry Commission Scotland track at Glen Seilisdeir off B8035 Salen/Kinloch scenic route.

There'll be signs from the road to the track. Guided by the ranger, you'll drive up to the hide in your own car.

What should I bring?

Wet weather gear is best (just in case!), as are practical shoes. Oh, and there are no toilets – so best to stop off before!

Still got some questions?

Telephone: To book your place on a trip, as well as to answer any wildlife/Mull general queries you might have, please call our friends at the Visit Scotland Information Centre, Craignure on 01680 812556.
