Wildlife - Scotland’s Big 5 all on Arran!
- posted 18th June 2017
Arran has all of Scotland’s Big 5 – the favourite wildlife in Scotland which include red squirrels, otters, golden eagles, red deer and harbour seals. You can see all these relatively easily on Arran:
Red squirrels are all over the island in the woodlands and can be seen at Brodick Castle where there is a webcam with a screen in the café.
Otters are shy but often seen on the southern beaches, especially at Kildonan.
Golden Eagles nest in the north and can be seen from the Distillery.
Red Deer are in all the woods in the south, on the mountains in the north and commonly on the golf course in Lochranza.
Seals are all around the coast, often sunbathing on the rocks! Blackwaterfoot and Kildonan are good spots to see them.
