Wildlife Diary

The Loch Melfort area abounds with diverse mammals, birds, marine life, insects, flora and fauna and many of our guests delight in telling us their wildlife sightings.

Perhaps you've seen a golden eagle riding the thermals, dolphins jumping through the waves, or a rare orchid hiding in the grass. Whatever you've seen, we would like to know about it, so please fill in the details of your sighting on our wildlife diary form and come back often to keep up with the latest wildlife sightings.


Mr B spotted a Dolphin on Tuesday, 19 August 2014 at 17:00

Wow! We saw a shoal of fish that were being chased by something so we stayed to watch. Suddenly a dolphin broke the surface of the water. We also saw otters catching some of the fish left by the dolphins. A great evening!


Mr and Mrs R spotted a Otter on Sunday, 03 August 2014 at 08:00

We watched three otters playing in the small bay just below the hotel. We watched them for about half an hour, which was such a treat.


Harry spotted a Gannet on Monday, 30 June 2014 at 19:00

On Monday evening we watched gannets diving at the head of Loch Craignish. Wow – they drop fast when they fold their wings for a dive. Amazing to see so near the shore.
