Updated Statement from Mull Eagle Watch April 2022 ***
The partnership which runs the award winning Mull Eagle Watch project (Mull & Iona Community Trust, RSPB Scotland, Nature Scot, Forestry and Land Scotland & Police Scotland) are sad to say that they are not able to run trips at Craignure Golf Course this year as the birds have moved nest site to an area not easily used for public viewing.
Visit Scotland will therefor not be taking bookings for us, but can provide you with information of alternative land and sea based wildlife trips on 01680812556
We appreciate the support of Visit Scotland, Craignure
White-tailed eagles are magnificent birds of prey, with a wingspan of over 2 metres when adult. They became extinct in Britain in the early 1900s but were reintroduced in the 70s.
The first successful breeding of the re-introduced white-tailed eagles occurred on Mull in 1985. Together with the golden eagle, these birds are the reason Mull is often called ‘Eagle Island’.
Mull Eagle Watch started in 2000 at Loch Frisa, allowing people to get great views of the birds without disturbing them. Since then the eagles have become TV stars – famous among bird lovers.
Thank you to everyone for their support and we hope to see you all soon
Mull Eagle Watch is sadly not open this year ,2022

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.
