KInloch Lodge Otter Spotting 2 Night Break

Wildlife is one of Skye's biggest draws, with over 400 miles of beautiful and unspoiled coastline. It is home to diverse and healthy populations including Puffins, Eagles, Porpoise, Dolphin, Minke Whales and Seals. One of the most popular, and sometimes most elusive sightings, are otters, and these wonderful animals are the inspiration for a new experience at the island's best loved hotel, Kinloch Lodge.

Kinloch have teamed up with friends at the nearby HQ of the International Otter Survival Fund to offer a two-night break that gives guests the greatest chance of seeing these native animals. Without straying too far from Kinloch, you will spend a full day with these local experts, immersed in nature and breathtaking scenery. You will see a wide selection of Skye's wildlife and even if the otters remain elusive, you'll have the opportunity to learn all about them.

Day one begins with a glass of fizz on arrival and a five course dinner

Day two starts with Kinloch's award-winning breakfast followed by otter watching from 10am - 4pm and a seven course dinner

Day three - breakfast and departure

£520 per person, based on two people sharing a standard room for two nights. Must include a midweek night, as otter watching is only available Monday-Friday.

Terms & Conditions

Offer is subject to availability and single supplements apply
It is difficult to spot otters in bad weather, (especially high winds), so sometimes we have to cancel the activity. Where we can, we will reschedule, but should this not be possible, we will refund the otter watching fee in full. Where a guest cancels, for whatever reason, the 20% deposit will be withheld. If cancellation takes place within 48 hours, then full payment will be due.

While nature isn't an on-demand service, being led by Grace Yoxon, Helen Stephenson or Ben Yoxon - who all have more than 25 years' experience of studying and watching otters on the Isle of Skye - means that the odds are in guests' favour.

Good waterproof outdoor clothing and wellington boots are highly recommended. While the walking isn't long or difficult, a reasonable amount of fitness is required. You may also wish to bring your own binoculars, though a pair can be provided.

Kinloch's standard cancellation policy applies to accommodation and dining bookings.
