Mull Sea Eagle Hide

Open April to September

One of the best places in Europe to enjoy unique and spectacular views of these impressive birds of prey, you can watch the nesting family from a safe distance.

The brand new hide at Glen Seilisdeir was opened on Friday, April 6th. More details about the Mull Eagle Watch and the Date With Nature project can be found at http://www.rspb.org.uk/datewithnature/sites/mull

To book a trip to see Fingal and Iona this year please call VisitScotland in Craignure on 01680 812 556.


Booking is essential. Each trip lasts about two hours. Adult tickets (including RSPB members) cost £6. If you're under 16, your ticket costs £3. If you live on Mull, it's free. Please pay the ranger on the day by cash or cheque ('Mull & Iona Community Trust'). Sorry, we don't have a card machine at the moment.

Opening times

There will be at least two trips per day to the hide, usually at 10 am and 1 pm. Each trip lasts two hours, with over an hour at the hide watching for eagles and other wildlife.

How to get there & Location

We've moved from Loch Frisa! You'll be given details of when
and where to meet upon booking your place, but the rendezvous
for the start of your adventure is roughly 0.5km up the Forestry
Commission Scotland track at Glen Seilisdeir off B8035  Salen/Kinloch scenic route.

No Vehicle Access

Please note that there is no vehicular access from the north end where there is a locked gate. Any walkers or cyclists on the forestry track are welcome to call in at the hide if a trip is on. Donations to the Mull Eagle Watch project are always welcome.

What should I bring & Facilities?

Wet weather clothing and stout shoes are recommended, although parking is available near to the hide. There is a small selection of telescopes and binoculars available for you to use, but please bring your own if you have them. There are no refreshment facilities or toilets at the hide (nearest are at Tobermory or Salen).
