Join Sally and Ailie as they chat about our recent 2023 holiday to the Isles of Mull, Iona and Canna in search of Corncrake and more.
“Some of our favourite places and experiences are all wrapped up in this special holiday, which takes us to some of the most beautiful and inaccessible parts of the west coast, with amazing wildlife. This holiday really is a bit of a treat.” - Sally.
You might just feel yourself transported to this magical island during the first few minutes of this episode as you hear Sally describe the experience of falling asleep to the 'krek-krek' of Corncrakes outside the hotel windows on Iona, after a magical day of island exploration. This holiday had so many highlights, including numerous eagle sightings, the sound of Corncrakes, Celtic Rainforest, two boat trips around Canna with Puffins and other seabirds up close and so much more.
According to Sally there was also much 'ottering' (the official term) as these elusive mammals kept themselves one step ahead of our group for the first few days, but patience paid off and everyone was rewarded with fabulous views on more than one occasion. In fact, one of our guests 'magic moments' was seeing Sally so pleased to have found an Otter!
