Fin whale and killer whales sighted!

We’ve had some exciting wildlife sightings this summer. Here are some examples:

Gairloch-based operator, Hebridean Whale Cruises took this fabulous photo of a fin whale, a rare sighting so close to land. The whale was first encountered on Thursday the 24th, 3 miles north of Rona, then again on 29th and again yesterday the 31st. It appears to be a adult or sub adult of 18 metres and is the first confirmed sighting in the Hebrides since 2006.

A sea-kayaking tour, with activity tour operator, Wilderness Scotland spied an orca last week (21st July) in the Sound of Arisaig: more info.
