For bird spotters, there’s loads on offer, and each month Arran Birding publishes a list of visiting birds, which can include occasional spotting of white-tailed eagles and even little puffins around Arran’s shorelines. The coast is also a great place to see gannets diving. Inland, raptors such as hen harriers, kestrels, sparrow hawks and owls are all common.
The coast itself is home to a variety of species, such as porpoise, dolphin and you may also spot minke whale or basking sharks at certain times of the year. The Community of Arran Seabed Trust (COAST) has a super marine discovery centre that is definitely worth a visit to find out what goes on under our seas!
