The White Tailed Sea Eagle and our ability to watch them has been an integral part of the Isle of Mull for more than three decades and is still the first, largest and most successful location for resident pairs of nesting and breeding White tailed sea eagles in the whole of the UK, our eagles are special because they were re introduced to Mull after being hunted to extinction from the west coast of Scotland and continue breeding successfully today within the wild landscape of the island.
Tiroran Community Forest Eagle Hide is less than 10 minutes from the gardens of Tiroran House Hotel and is one of only 2 (5 star) gold tourism awards to exist in Scotland. Tiroran offers first class and unrivalled views of nesting white tailed sea eagles and you can be reassured that you will be mesmerised by this unique, spectacular and premier wild life watching experience – they are frequent visitors to the skies and beach of Tiroran House and close encounters are a regular and frequent experience
