A new hide has just been completed on the hillside above Cheanna Mhuir, approx 8km along Loch Arkaig, watching the wildlife on Arkaigside but in particular the Sea Eagles that now call Loch Arkaig home.

In the summer of 2015 one of the chicks on the nest was identified as having swallowed some fihing lures during the annual monitoring and ringing project.  The chick was removed from the nest, operated on to remove the lures and successfully returned to the nest.

Our first guests have arrived at the Apartments complete with mountain bikes and the whole family cycled to Laggan and back via the forestry tracks on their first day. Worth a long hot soak in the bath tub afterwards surely ! A long walk today through some of our glorious local scenery and tracks should loosen off those tired muscles and later on in the week a trip on the steam train 'Hogworts Express'with West Coast Railways on an 84 mile round trip through 'Harry Potter' land is planned. Shaping up for a great family holiday.
