Seals and Birds

There is a place in Dunvegan, at Dunvegan Castle (seat of the chief of the Clan MacLeod, first built in the 13th century) where you can be taken out in a boat to see the seals and birds. The boat is not big but is ably piloted, in my case, by the wonderful Trevor (also of Island at the Edge!).

The water was not rough and gradually I let go of my tight grip on the seat!

Here is a pair of black-backed gulls, the largest member of the gull family and, in the second photo at the upper right, you can see a glimpse of an artic tern who is just returning to the area.

And now, the seals. The small size of the boat lets us get in very close and even see some bobbing and playing in the water.

A very pleasant excursion and well worth putting a tip in the box!
