WEE BEAST­IES

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Best Road Trips -

The West Coast of Scot­land is home to rich wildlife. Both white-tailed and golden ea­gle have be­come a fa­mil­iar sight in the skies over the Cuillins and Raasay, while it is not un­usual to spot common and bot­tlenose dol­phin, har­bour por­poise and even minke whale from sites on the Skye shore, as well as common and grey seal and ot­ter. Take one of the boat trips from Portree, El­gol or Shiel­d­aig, and you might also glimpse rarer visit­ing whales.
