Although the Isle of Mull has a healthy population of otters, they can sometimes be both elusive and frustrating.  As a result, sightings can never be guaranteed. However, this tour takes us into the territories of several of these enchanting animals and offers an exciting opportunity to look for, and learn about the Eurasian otter. The welfare of the otter always comes first and we search for these mammals in a responsible manner, which promotes the welfare of Mull’s wildlife amid beautiful coastal surroundings.
