Wildlife

Whether its on the water, in the water, on the land, or in the air you will always see something on a trip on the 'Sula Mhor'. Where else would you see seals, dolphins, whales and llamas in the same hour. Yes even llamas can be seen from the boat, at the Craig Highland Rare Breeds Farm, below the magnificent Plockton Crags. And remember its free if there are no seals!

Just a small selection of Plockton's magnificent wildlife is shown in the pictures below. Click on an image to see a larger photo, and then click the arrow to see the next one!
