“A great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Seeing the sea eagles was one of the objectives of the holiday, so this was a must. Must be booked in advance by phone, as numbers are limited - £8 per head which is all ploughed back into local projects. The two guides - John from RSPB and Rachel from Forestry Commission were very knowledgeable, and tremendously helpful. We were met at the meeting point in the forest and walked to the viewing point where telescopes were set up - the eagles' nest was on the other side of the Glen. The female had laid her first egg of the year just a few days before and was on the nest when we arrived. For the first hour there was little to see - just a bit of movement on the nest, difficult to see through the branches. Then suddenly the male returned and the female left the nest and perched on a tree in the open providing a perfect view for us. Great to see, and can recommend to anyone interested in wildlife.

“Worth the trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

It was raining when we went and the shelter wasn't brilliant. But we saw the eagles and the staff were good with the kids but it was a bit wet - could have done with better facilities. Good value for the money

Hi, thank you for leaving us a review. We're sorry it was a bit wet that day, Mull often is unfortunately. This year our viewing point to the nest site is the hide iself so we have much shelter on offer now.

“Excellent value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Must book by phone, as limited numbers only. Extremely informative, not just of the sea eagles, but tips/hints on every other animal you can think of, and where to find them.
For a few pounds, it was a very wonderful couple of hours spent in this expert company.
Simply a "must" whilst visiting Mull for any length.

“A 'must see' on Mull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

A highly informative and interesting wildlife experience with a good opportunity to see white tailed eagles. The experience involves a briefing from a well informed guide and moves to an open hide with views of the nest. If the eagles are not there there is a good chance they will be on roosts nearby which are familiar to the guide. Access is good and total distance walked is about 1000m, the trip lasts around 2 hours. Its best to look up details on the web to check opening times and ring the number provided in advance of a visit.
