Here at Ardrioch we have a large variety of birds and wildlife right outside your windows for you to enjoy. Arthur feeds the garden birds all year around and many of our guests like photographing them from there cottage windows. At the bottom of the garden, close to the compost heap, we have a tin sheet that warms up in the summer and under it we find slow worms, toads and voles. We also have resident Hedgehogs.

Within in a short 10 minute walk of Ardrioch you can go down to the forshore of Loch Cuin and find ducks, waders and an Otter is seen regularly. Small woodland birds can be seen on the track down to the loch side. Looking up behind the house you may even see Golden Eagles or White-tail Sea Eagles which can also be seen flying in the area, sometimes right over the house.

We have a nesting pair of White-tail Eagles at the back of the farm, the nest can be seen just a few minutes walk from the self-catering or they can be seen regularly flying over head. This photo was taken by Robert Farrow, a guest  staying in our self-catering cottage.
 
At night you can hear the hoot of the tawny owl which nests in the woodland behind the house or the screech of our local barn owl.
