Lochalsh Wildlife Watch Group

The Lochalsh Wildlife Watch group is run by National Trust for Scotland rangers based at Kintail and Balmacara, and is aimed at children between 7 and 12 year old. Younger children are welcome if they are accompanied by an adult. The club is affiliated to the Scottish Wildlife Trust and we take part in national wildlife projects and surveys.
