Watching Otters on Mull

We don’t reveal specific locations but it’s safe to say that otters can be spotted all over Mull and at any time of the day. We often recommend to our guests a drive out to Loch Na Keal as this offers a large expanse to drive around. Also a stroll around the headland of Calgary Bay offers good spotting opportunity.

It is not unheard of to be sat in the lounge at Clachan Cottage, looking out across the loch and watch an otter or two snuffling in the seaweed for crabs and fish. If you’re especially lucky you may see the kingfisher darting across the loch or a Golden or White Tailed eagle soar above.

For all things otter, we strongly recommend you visit the Mull Otter Group website for more information on good practice and an online form to submit otter sightings.
