Isle Of Mull Wildlife Photography

From: £Contact us

Join wildlife photographers Nick Garbutt and Alex Hyde on our photography trip to Isle of Mull where we have the opportunity to capture stunning images of a diverse range of birds, flowers, plants, landscapes and mammals.

Over the course of our week-long stay we will explore this stunning island, on foot, by vehicle and by boat accompanied by experienced wildlife photographers Nick Garbutt and Alex Hyde, as well as Isle of Mull naturalist Nic Davies. During our trip we will have the opportunity to indulge in macro photography and try out a variety techniques with the expert help of our leaders.

A boat trip to the neighbouring Treshnish Isles will take in the Isle of Staffa and Fingal's Cave before moving onto the Isle of Lunga where there will be an opportunity to spend time with and photograph at close quarters one of the UK's most charismatic seabirds, the enigmatic puffin, together with huge numbers of other sea birds, including guillemots, razorbills, shags and fulmars. Lunga offers a ‘Galapagos' type experience, where tolerant endearing birds can surround you on all sides. During the voyage out to and back from the isles, there is a reasonable chance of also seeing dolphins, basking sharks and possibly even minke whales.

A separate full day exclusive boat charter will provide superb opportunities to photograph spectacular white-tailed eagles, as well as the chance of both harbour and grey seals. We will also visit the charming Isle of Ulva, a haven for seals, otters and a variety of other wildlife. The island also offers plenty of macro photography opportunities with over 500 species of plant recorded including several rare orchids alongside some stunning sea-shore life.
