North Harris has one of the highest densities of breeding Golden Eagles in Europe. With its large expanses of open terrain this is a fantastic place to watch these spectacular birds.
This year RSPB Scotland and the North Harris Trust are working in partnership to provide an Eagle walk every Wednesday from 3rd April right through to 18th September.
The walk takes you up the track through Glen Vigidale, and on to the small summit of Tom Ruisg, with superb views down Loch Langavat. In 2012 there was a 100% success rate of seeing eagles on these walks.
The walks will be lead alternately by the North Harris Ranger Service and RSPB Scotland and are free of charge, although donations are accepted.
The full programme of NHT guided walks starts 18th April with a walk out at Hushinish.
The brochure is currently being printed and will be available in the next few weeks, meanwhile anyone interested can find the programme on our website www.north-harris.org. For more details you can also contact Ranger Matt Watts, details as above.
