24th July: Minke Whales!

Yesterday on the Guided Walk out to Scalpay lighthouse, we were treated to sightings of a number of Minke Whales out in the Minch! The sea was totally flat/calm so it was really easy to spot everything on the water. Also plenty of Gannets, Guillemots and Gulls, as well as a Great Northern Diver and even a solitary Puffin fishing just off the lighthouse! What a day!
