Bolder beach

This beach has got to be one of the most amazing places to visit along our coastline in wester-ross . The rocks dropped here by the glaciers sit on a bed of softer rock and have eroded out and now sit like exhibits in natures own art gallery . To add to this strange landscape bright green seaweed grows from the base rocks and the winds create long lines of cloud .

A good days hunting

I spent about two hours watching this otter hunting around rocks near Grunyard Island in that time he caught a small lobster ,Crabs, Butterfish ,and a couple of large Ling. By the end of the hunt he looked well and truly full . Strong westerly winds for the last few days may have made fishing difficult , so he may well have been making up for lost time . Along the rocky coast line of Scoraig and the surrounding area Otters seem to be doing very well and there seems little shortage of prey.
