CNDO Scotland

“… and as we rounded the corner after the old shielings above the silvery tide line, something was spotted on the rock a few paces ahead. Could it be? Yes, it was! Crouching carefully and with baited breath, we watched with concentrated attention, hardly daring to hope. When at last turning to spot us, it lifted off - the most magnificent white tailed sea eagle. Just brilliant. Barn-door size was an under-statement. Fantastic!” …  A majestic sighting on an Outer Hebrides walking holiday. There are many more choices – Cape Wrath Trail, Handful of Islands, Nevis Sea to Summit, Skye Trail…
