We receive many sightings reports from the  MISTY ISLE BOAT TRIP which runs out of Elgol.  On the trips they frequently see porpoises in the summer and puffins in the spring.  If you want more information on the trips click on the link below:

You can also get more detailed bird records at SKYE BIRDS (this book available at the Otter Shop)

IF YOU ARE ON THE ISLE OF SKYE PLEASE SEND US YOUR SIGHTINGS SO THAT WE MAY RECORD THEM TOO.  FIND OUR CONTACT DETAILS ON THE  IOSF WEBSITE.
