Otters, Seals and Creels

Wildlife on show

This tour will make its way along the South coast of East Loch Tarbert taking in settlements from the late 1800s in Ard Meavig where the remains of blackhouses and cultivation of a long gone era can be seen at the water’s edge , along to – Caolas Sgeire Buidhe – and on
to – Port na Biorach (dog fish noost) where herring was cured and transported directly to Baltic ports in the late 19th Century, as far as – Cathair na Cailleach (maiden’s chair) – at Rubha Rebinish.

This is a leisurely cruise with excellent wildlife spotting opportunities and general sightseeing on our way. On our return leg we will lift some creels and display the catch in our purpose made viewing tanks where you can interact with the various species of crustacean and what ever else we catch. Overall, a great insight into a traditional way of life.
