You don't need to have Royal Marine training to be
able to appreciate the great outdoors, so Mitchell's
walks can be enjoyed by people of all ages. He will
take you in search of his favourite mammal and most
formidable competitor on the river, the Otter ( the
Otter always catches more fish.) Down at the loch side,
Grey and Harbour Seals can be seen at high tide. Oyster
Catchers, Herons, Cormorants and Gannets are just a
few of the species of birds abundant around the rugged
Venture higher up onto the hills and you will be
in raptor country. Buzzards, Peregrine Falcons, and
the mighty Golden Eagle can be seen soaring on the thermals.
This is where you may find Grouse and the most famous
of all Highland animals, the majestic Red Deer, grazing
in the heather.
The nature walks take place on the Kingsburgh Sporting
Estate, just 8 miles form the main Skye town of Portree.
The estate covers 12,500 acres and is a magical expanse
steeped in history and myth. You could visit the birthplace
of Flora Macdonald or walk along the chaplains pass
to see the remains of a bronze age dwelling. Mitchell
will pass on to you the tales and history of this romantic
and beautiful part of the Isle of Skye. A visit to Kingsburgh
Estate will remain in your memory forever.
