Amazing Wildlife and all on our Doorstep

Here are just some of the best trips and people to meet...

Ardmanurchan is famous for being home to most of Scotland's rare and wonderful wildlife.  Otters, Red Deer, Pine Martens, Red Squirrels Golden Eagles.  All are regular visitors to the hotel and the loch as well as a myriad of sea birds along our shore line. The haunting cry of the Oyster Catchers are a constant reminder of where you are and Kilcamb Lodge is perfectly placed to enjoy it all on our doorstep.

From Dolphin and Whale watching off the stunning coast to Otters at the bottom of the garden and Golden Eagles on one of the many trips in and around the ares.

Scottish Birds

You'll be spoilt for choice...

The natural, unspoiled Ardnamurchan peninsula boasts many wonderful wildlife sightings from guests. A boat trip to Staffa, Coll, Muck or Mull is virtually guaranteed to produce sightings of big fish including Minky Whales, Killer Whales and Basking Sharks as well as seals and of course Dolphins. A day trip is a must for all visitors and a special memory of your stay.

Walking, Wildlife and Whale watching tours and more are readily available by arrangement and we can point out the best places to see our wonderful Sunart Otters, as well as Eagle watching on Mull.


Puffin Scotland

Puffins & Whale Watching

A fantastic day out and a "must do" trip showcasing some iconic and not to be missed sights in the waters off the West coast of Scotland.  All are easily completed in a one day boat trip which will take your breath away.

Puffins are some of the most tame and adorable species of Scottish birds and they are plentiful on Staffa from May to July.  You can sit amongst them and enjoy their endeering antics off the cliffs of Staffa.  Staffa is also the rock which houses the famous “Fingals Cave”  The inspiration for the wonderful Mendelssohn overture written in 1829.  Basking Sharks are the largest of all the shark species but completely harmless, feeding on plankton which they filter through their ever open mouths as they swim along.  They can easily be sighted on both outward and return journeys on this magical trip.

Otter Watching Scotland

Otter Spotting

If you are looking for Otters, then Andy Jackson is the man to see. He has a wonderful video of one of his nature "otter spotting" trips and is something of an expert on their habits and more importantly their whereabouts!!

If you are lucky, you may get a sighting at the Wildlife hide just 20 minutes from Kilcamb. Many sightings have been logged but its a nice wee walk as well!

We also see otters regularly at Kilcamb Lodge, as well as Pine Martens and Stags and even Golden Eagles so be sure to keep a watchfull eye open at all times!!

One of the most welcoming hotels ever. Not only Ms Rita welcomed me with a smile and answered my questions with high professionalism, the decor itself made me feel instantly at home, a luxurious one.

We stayed at this charming lodge for 3 nights in July and loved everything about it--our large and comfortable room, the peace and quiet, the pretty sitting rooms, the friendly and very professional staff, and the exquisite dining room. From the moment Luis greeted us

Food was amazing, everything was finished. My family and I enjoyed every part of our night, we were celebrating an 85th and 15th birthday. Wine selection was beautiful and service was always right there when you needed it. Thank you again for a wonderful night.
