*** Statement from Mull Eagle Watch 2020 ***
The partnership which runs the award winning Mull Eagle Watch project (Mull & Iona Community Trust, RSPB Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Forestry & Land Scotland & Police Scotland) has taken the decision to postpone indefinitely the opening of this year’s Mull Eagle Watch in light of Government advice regarding the current coronavirus pandemic.
The situation will be kept under regular review and if anything significant changes or improves we may be able to reconsider how best to adapt the season to allow responsible eagle viewing whilst ensuring our visitors and staff remain safe.
This decision has been taken in consultation with our brilliant host site at Craignure Golf Club and our hardworking booking partners at VisitScotland Craignure.
Thank you to everyone for their support and we hope to be back with you and open for business at some point in the future.
Mull Eagle Watch is open April to September.
Where are we: We are at a new base this year and are being hosted by Craignure Golf Club 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 812 556.
Trips will run at 11am and 2pm. Closed Saturday only. Each trip lasts about one and a half hours.
Adult tickets (including RSPB members) cost £10.
If you’re under 16, your ticket costs £5.
A family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) costs £25.
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.
Toilets, dog friendly facilities, and refreshments available on site.
This date with Mull’s sea eagles is brought to you with the help of Forestry and Land Scotland Mull & Iona Community Trust, Police Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Craignure Golf Club, RSPB Scotland, the local community and volunteers. Money raised goes back to this host project and to help Mull Eagle Watch.
Mull Eagle Hide is graded by VisitScotland as a five star “exceptional wildlife experience” and it gained a gold Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. It has won recent awards including ‘Innovation in Tourism’ from the Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards and ‘Nature Tourism’ from The Nature of Scotland Awards.
