This is a small sample of some of the wildlife around the Mull of Kintyre. Seals (both Common and Grey) and many of the birds, including Oystercatchers, Curlews and the spectacular Gannets, can often be seen. Less common, but still regularly sighted, are Golden Eagles, Hen Harriers, Otters and Dolphins, with occasional visits from Basking Sharks, Sea Eagles and even Minke Whales.
