From the Royal an Lochan’s vantage point right on the shores of the Kyles of Bute we very often see a wonderful variety of wildlife.
Sometimes it’s seals popping their heads inquisitively out of the water or coming ashore to the beach to bask in the sun or herons fly down from the hill lochs to stalk and catch some fish at the water’s edge.
Recently, whilst enjoying a relaxing coffee in the hotel, we had the rare chance to spot some very elusive sea otters. They just appeared out of nowhere and on the rocks right in front of us tucked into something they’d caught for a snack.
We’re so lucky to have such an abundance of wildlife in the area which regularly provides some free entertainment for our guests.
