New Ranger in position

Hello everybody, Just a quick note to introduce myself.

Wow I’ve got a lot of work to do to provide as good a Ranger service as my predecessor Matt did!

My name is Daryll and I have been a resident of Harris since June 2015. I feel incredibly lucky to live and work on such a beautiful island that is rich in wildlife, geology and cultural history.

Over the next weeks and months I will be leading a comprehensive series of guided walks highlighting many of North Harris’s most spectacular sights from the Machair at Hushinish to the peak of the mighty Clisham. On these walks I will be (hopefully) spotting and identifying wildlife and plants, explaining the landscape around you, providing an incite into life on Harris in days gone past and telling some pretty dodgy jokes!

Along with these walks, working in partnership with the RSPB there will be a weekly eagle walk every Wednesday from 27th April to 7th of September.  As Harris holds one of the highest densities of Golden Eagles in Europe we can boast a 95% success sighting rate!

These walks are open to everyone and apart from the eagle walks are free! For more information see the ‘what’s on’ section on the website or contact myself at or 01859 502222.

The increasingly popular mountain festival kicks off on September 3 with an amazing line up of events! The final programme line up will announced soon, keep an eye on the website for more details. It’s going to be pretty special!

I will try to write something weekly to keep you updated with things happening here and any interesting wildlife sightings.

In the mean time if you want to pop in or email and have a chat then feel free. I would love to hear from more stories of times gone by on Harris.

Until next time, cheers,
