Minke Whale and Corncrake at Uig

Had a great day out from Seacroft today, we saw a Minke Whale at Kilt Rock and watched it surfacing close in for half an hour. Later the same day at Uig we heard a single Corncrake calling, it was close to Uig Wood strangely on the shore side of the wood, this was our first calling bird of the year.

Guest Feedback – Emma and Gerry

Emma and Gerry “We enjoyed a wonderful stay at Seacroft Cottage. Mick and Wendy are delightful hosts, making us feel very welcome and going out of their way to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we need.

Dolphins at Seacroft

This morning we were having a cup of tea in the conservatory when we saw a pod of four dolphins swimming in Loch Snizort, they were playing and jumping out of the water. I walked down to lochside and got a photo of one on its way back out to sea.
