Garbh Eilean Hide

We've been on a bit of a mission for a while now and without much success.  What be that mission? - to see an otter in the wild.  We have wiled away many an hour in many locations in search of this elusive creature.  Now here we were in an area that is renound for its otter population.  Surely this would be the time to tick that one of the list.

Sunart Woodland Trails had given us what should be the perfect place to achieve our goal, Garbh Eilean Hide.  It's a very impressive set up, fully accessible for disabled too.  The board inside documented there had been recent sightings of our prize.  Would we be lucky................................... not this time.  Ah well, we have a week here so fingers crossed.


  1. Awesome Little blog, so beautiful views, the kind you only get in Scotland (and perhaps the lakes)!! Quick question, do you wear waterproof accessories? (i.e hats, gloves, socks?) I have been looking at the SealSkinz Socks but don't really know too much about them. If anyone has any info, it would be appreciated! Cheers, J
