Cruise up the west coast of the Isle of Skye heading to Stein in Loch Bay. Good for eagles with many local territories - depending on time available there is also the possibility of an excursion down to Carbost for a 4x4 forest visit with eagles and also otters nearby.
Cruise to the Shiant Isles, watching out for cetaceans on the way and passing the photogenic Scalpay lighthouse at Eilean Glas. We will have the afternoon and evening at the Shiants for a shore excursion and taking our tender for a close look around the seabird colonies and maybe through the sea arch, both depending on tide and weather but should be fine in May. We will anchor at the Shiants for the night to the sights and sounds of thousands of puffins, razorbills and guillemots. We have an alternative sheltered anchorage in Loch Shell (Sealg) on the Isle of Lewis if the weather necessitates it.
Thursday 9th June - back in Inverness by the early evening.
