Wildlife & Birdwatching

Tiree is a popular destination for birdwatchers. The rich machair, wet moorlands and lochs provide perfect habitats for all types of waterfowl, waders and the evasive corncrake. The RSPB has a warden on Tiree who can provide up to date sightings and information for bird watchers.

Tiree is also home to a variety of wild animals. Hares, hedgehogs and seals are all common sights. For those up early enough an otter may be spotted on the beach. The sea off Tiree also plays host to a wide range of marine life, Basking sharks and Common dolphins can all be seen as can the occasional Minke or Killer Whale. There are also hundreds of rock pools filled with shore crabs, sea anemones, small fish, winkles and starfish.

Rockvale is surrounded by Corncrakes in the summer months and if you don't actually see one you will certainly hear them!
