A great Cocktail Making & Spirits Experience located in Oban, Argyll and Bute.
Prepare to be amazed on this inspiring puffin tour of a special conservation area in the Treshnish Isles. With over 3000 puffins inhabiting the island, its the ultimate place to witness the distinctive seabirds in their natural habitat, along with other species such as razorbills, guillemots and fulmars. Arrive on the shore via a small dingy and explore the island by foot with an expert guide keeping their eyes peeled for the local wildlife. Witness the puffins hunting for fish and taking food home to their cliff-side burrows, where their young await. Later in the season, guests may even be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the pufflings poking their heads out. Don’t forget a camera, because this is guaranteed to be something worth capturing!
