Otter Spotting Escape

While nature isn’t an on-demand service, being led by Grace Yoxon, Helen Stephenson or Ben Yoxon- who all have more than 25 years’ experience of studying and watching otters on the Isle of Skye -and the fact that these otters are not nocturnal, means the odds are in guests’ favour. 

Without straying too far from Kinloch, you will spend a full day with these local experts, immersed in nature and breathtaking scenery, and while the main objective is to see these furry favourites, you will see a wide selection of Skye’s wildlife. Even if the otters remain elusive, you’ll learn about them, including how to spot the signs that they’re nearby and track them in the wild, without disturbing them.   


Day One

Day Two
Kinloch’s award-winning breakfast, 10:00 – 16:00 Otter Watching, dinner

Otter Spotting Terms & Conditions:
It is difficult to spot otters in bad weather (especially high winds) so sometimes we have to cancel the activity, where we can we will reschedule but should this not be possible we will refund the otter watching fee in full  Where a guest cancels, for whatever reason, the 20% deposit will be withheld, if cancellation takes place within 48 hours then full payment will be dueKinloch Lodge’s standard cancellation policy applies to accommodation and dining bookings.

Important information:
Day two of this package must fall on a week day as otter watching is only vailable Monday - Friday. You will need to wear good, waterproof outdoor clothing and wellington boots, or not mind getting wet feet. While the walking isn’t long, or difficult, a reasonable amount of fitness is required, if you are unsure we can put you in touch with the Yoxons who can advise in detail. You may also wish to bring your own binoculars, though a pair can be provided.
