Mingulay, Pabbay & Berneray

Eagles soar and dolphins splash around these Hebridean islands, also home to a rare Pictish stone

Things to do

Nature spotting

All three islands are fantastic places to watch seabirds: razorbills, puffins and guillemots as well as Arctic terns and fulmar.

In the summer you may hear the rasping call of the corncrake from the thick vegetation, and look out for skuas as they protect their nests.

On the journey to the islands you may be lucky enough to see dolphins or a basking shark.
