I've just returned from my first visit to Mull. Wow, what a fabulous place with a tremendous mountainous landscape. If you don't know it's an island just off the west coast of Scotland which has become a wildlife hotspot especially for both White Tailed and Golden Eagles. August is not the best time to visit but it was my only option this year. A ferry runs several times each day from Oban and there are numerous hotels and B&B accommodation on the island at reasonable prices.
Sadly the some of the migrants, such as the large Cuckoo population had already left and all the young raptors were on the wing. Next year I'll go back in May and keep my fingers crossed that the weather, and therefore the light, will be suitable.
I used a guide for the first day to help get my bearings, which was money well spent. Bryan was only too willing to share his knowledge and mark my maps with the wildlife hotspots.
If you get the chance please visit this wonderful place.
