guided "Eagle-Watch" cruises aboard the historic MV Sileas
on the beautiful, sheltered waters of Loch Shiel.
Share the local skipper Jim Michie's eighteen years' experience
of spotting Golden Eagles, White-Tailed Eagles, Red-throated
Divers, Hen Harriers, Red Deer, plus a wide variety of other
wildlife, while learning the History and Geology of this special,
remote and unspoiled part of the Highlands of Scotland.
Accessible only by boat, Loch Shiel is one of Scotland's most
historically significant and unspoiled natural treasures.
Carved out by retreating glaciers over successive ice ages, this 18 mile long freshwater loch
has changed relatively little since then and can truly be
called a Last Wilderness.
Now you can cruise the magnificent and historic scenery of
Loch Shiel in company with a friendly and knowledgeable local
crew, with live commentary on the History and Wildlife of
this beautiful region.
Sileas has a bar, and tea, light refreshments and coffee are
available. Meals and snacks are available ashore at each end
of Loch Shiel.
Sileas has Marine Safety Approval to carry 50 passengers,
with covered and open seating on deck and a Saloon below decks.
