One Day Puffin Tour
People really like this Cocktail Making & Spirits Experience located handily in Oban, Argyll and Bute.
Feed your inquisitive side with this eye opening puffin tour in a special conservation area of the Treshnish Isles. Whether a wildlife lover or an avid photographer, this tour is the perfect opportunity to get up close with the puffins, witnessing the majestic seabirds in their natural habitat. Along with up to 3000 puffins, the island is also home to a selection of other seabirds, including razorbills, guillemots and fulmars. Arrive via a small dingy, then explore the island by foot with an expert guide to hand and witness the puffins nesting in their cliff-side burrows and hunting for fish. Later in the season, guests may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the young pufflings poking their head out of the burrows. What an experience!
