Wild West offers a selection of wildlife safaris from 2 1/2 hours to a full day. Transport is by comfortable minibus. Species regularly spotted include red deer, golden and sea eagles, osprey, black throated diver and scoter. The following gives a selection of the safaris available. We can also offer bespoke tours. Please call 0333 123 2820 to discuss your preferences.
Most trips run daily on demand, on a first come, first served basis. The exception is the full day trip with cruise which only runs on a Wednesday, leaving Fort William at 09.00 am. Bookings are not always essential but are strongly advised.
Join Wild West for a Full day Wildlife safari with cruise on Loch Shiel. We’ll meet at the car park below the Moorings at 9.00am and head up to Glenfinnan. There you will join skipper Jim Michie for a one way cruise down Loch Shiel on the MV Sileas (Gaelic for faithful). You’ll be looking out for golden eagles, sea eagle, red deer, hen harriers and black throated diver amongst others. And what Jim doesn’t know about the history of the area hasn’t yet been written!
At Acharacle you’ll be met again by the Wild West mini bus and we’ll stop for a spot of lunch. You can bring a picnic or we’ll find a local restaurant. After lunch we’ll head out to Castle Tioram, a ruined island fortress in a spectacular location at the mouth of Loch Moidart. From there we return by the shores of Loch Sunart looking for otters, seals, terns, black guillemot, divers and the numerous other species of seabird that frequent this spectacular sea loch. We then return to Fort William via the Corran ferry and should arrive back around 5.30 pm.
