Porpoise Sightings At Tighnabruaich

The Whale and Dolphin Trust recent sightings calendar shows that quite a few Harbour Porpoise have been regularly spotted in the Kyles of Bute at Tighnabruaich over the summer.

These amazing marine mammals are very like dolphins although much smaller and while dolphins can also be seen surfacing and jumping out of the water here at Tighnabruaich it is rare that porpoises will ever jump out of he water. Instead they are much more sedate and prefer to gently break the surface so all that is visible is their backs and dorsal fins.

One of the beauties of the Royal an Lochan’s location right on the shore at Tighnabruaich is that guests at the hotel can watch not only porpoises but dolphins, seals, herons from the Lounge, Breakfast Dining Room and Restaurant or if they are sitting enjoying drinks on the patio at the front of the hotel.
