Wildlife enthusiast? This is the number one location on Glengorm for wildlife watching. Loch Mingary is a haven for aquatic birds, with Black-throated divers, Mergansers, Goosanders, Shielducks, Cormorants, Shags, and gulls all frequently seen. Waders such as Curlew, Oystercatcher sandpipers and Turnstone (to name but a few) enjoy foraging on the exposed mud.

Otters and seals are frequent visitors, and it is here that White-tailed eagles are sighted daily on Glengorm. In the forest lining the opposite bank of Loch Mingary, there is an active Heronry. Our new Nature Pod will allow guests to enjoy the antics of these comical birds as they rear their young, whilst remaining hidden to prevent disturbance.

This walk is: Easy-Moderate
