Visiting and booking

Mull Eagle Watch offers guided visits to view Britain’s largest and most impressive bird of prey, the white-tailed eagle.

Guided visits run from April to September 2017 and last around 2 hours (10am – noon and 1pm – 3pm). Subject to availability, visits may run on request at other times of year.

How do I book?

Numbers are limited to make sure everyone has a good experience, so booking is essential. Call 01680 812556 for booking and information.

Where do we meet?

This year, Mull Eagle Watch is running in two locations. Even if you’ve been before, please check the current locations on booking.

How much does it cost?

  • Adults, including RSPB members, £10
  • Under 16s, £5
  • Family of 4 ticket, £25

Please pay your guide on the day, with cash or cheque. Income from the guided tours benefits local good causes.

For guests who would like to experience both sites, a discount of 50% will be offered at the second hide. Trips are free to permanent Mull residents.

Please bring…

We recommend you bring waterproofs, just in case! Midge repellent can be handy too. Bring binoculars if you have them – we have good quality Viking/RSPB telescopes for you to use.

What can I hope to see?

  • April: Adults sitting on eggs
  • May – July: Chicks in the nest
  • August onwards: Chicks fledged but in the area

Anything else I need to know?

The visit may include driving your own vehicle on a gravel forest road to reach the viewing location. There is a short walk on a gravel and earth path, and time stood in the viewing area. Closer vehicle access can sometimes be arranged (please let us know your requirements on booking). There are currently no toilets at the viewing sites.

From Tuesday 18 April to the end of June 2017 the route to the Tiroran site will be affected by the closure to traffic of Knock Bridge on the B8035 Loch na Keal route. During this time, access to Tiroran will be via the A849 Craignure to  Kinloch Junction and then the B8035 to the Mull Eagle Watch road signs and meeting point. Please allow extra time for your journey. Drive times from Craignure to Tiroran are around one hour.
