WILDLIFE

Introduction

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to spotting wildlife at Morsgail. Many golden eagles nest on the estate, deer often graze right in front of the window and otters bob in our rivers.

You will often hear the grouse from the lodge in the evenings, and can see the salmon jumping out of the loch from the dinning room table.

Head towards the sea and you’ll spot basking sharks, dolphins, porpoises, several species of whale and Atlantic and Common grey seals, greedily following the fishing fleet in search of an easy meal. The air and cliffs are thick with gannets, skuas and fulmars – all bustling for space on the cliffside.

Details

A rich and diverse range of wildlife on the Estate and surrounding area including wild deer.

The coast offers a plethora of wildlife ranging from whales, dolphins, sharks, seals through to the elusive otter

If you're a keen birdwatcher there's plenty to see including the golden eagle, gannets, skuas and fulmars. We are also one of the few places in the UK where Corncrakes can still be heard in the summer evenings, and there are migratory birds that stop over, or are summer/winter residents.
