Mull Eagle Watch – 2018 season information

Mull Eagle Watch is open April to September 2018.

Where are we: We are at a new base this year and are being hosted by Craignure Golf Club (NM704384) on the outskirts of the village of Craignure (just over a mile from the Craignure ferry terminal). On booking you will be given more details about where and when to meet.

Booking: Booking is essential. Bookings and further information can be obtained from Visit Scotland at Craignure and by phone on 01680 812556. Each trip lasts about one and a half hours. Trips will run at 11am and 2pm, Sunday – Friday (closed on Saturdays)

Price: Adult tickets (including RSPB members) cost £8. If you’re under 16, your ticket costs £4. A family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) costs £20. If you live on Mull, it’s free. Please pay the ranger on the day by cash or cheque (‘Mull & Iona Community Trust’). Sorry, we don’t have a card machine at the moment.

What should I bring:Wet weather gear is best (just in case) as are practical shoes as the trip involves a short walk along the edge of the golf course.

Extra info: toilets and refreshments available on site. Dogs welcome on trips.

Mull Eagle Watch is brought to you with the help of Forestry Commission Scotland, Mull and Iona Community Trust, Police Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, RSPB Scotland Craignure Golf Club, the local community and volunteers.
