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.
