Wildlife and Nature

You may be lucky enough to spot Scotland’s Big Five on your days out while staying at Fern Villa.

Red Squirrel – Take a short drive to Glen Righ, near the car park there is a viewing area where you can watch the squirrels feeding.

Golden Eagle – Turn your head to the skies and there is a good chance that you will see a golden eagle from anywhere in the area. ┬áLots of other birds of prey to be spotted too.

Harbour Seal – Have a stroll down to the lochside and train your eyes over to the small islands where you might spot a head bobbing around in the water.

Otter – Notoriously shy you’ll need to be patient and very still. ┬áSpend some time on either shoreline near the Ballachulish bridge, where Loch Leven meets Loch Linnhe.

Red Deer – Best to have a drive down Glen Etive and pull over in the laybys and look over to the hills.
