Wild West offer a selection of wildlife safaris from 4 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 plus many more. Join Wild West to search for Scotland’s Big Five. The Wednesday Big Five safari includes a 2 hour boat trip on Loch Shiel, taking you into the heart of one of the wildest parts of Scotland. The Big Five safari runs on other days but without the boat trip. Throughout October, safaris to watch the red deer rut are available twice daily if demand dictates. Photo safaris to photograph the red deer are available throughout the winter and your guide Ian MacLeod is a semi professional photographer who has enormous experience of photographing the UK’s largest land mammal. Join a searchlight safari to look for the creatures of the night including bats, badgers and the elusive pine marten. These trips are better in the spring and autumn when night falls earlier, however in the summer months a dusk safari is offered so that you can be home at a sensible time! Bespoke Wildlife experiences for groups of up to eight are also available throughout the year and pick ups can be arranged. Whether you want a few ticks off your list, want to tailor your own trip or simply prefer the privacy of your own group, please call to discuss your requirements. Wild West are open all year round and winter offers some of the best wildlife watching opportunities with less cover on trees to hide animals and sunrise/sunset at times that suit humans.
