Ardrioch is a small farm croft set in its own 35 acres of paddocks and woodland with scenic loch views to the rolling hills beyond. The farm lies between the lovely village of Dervaig and Calgary Bay with its white sandy beach. The property has a large flat lawn at the rear suitable for children to play on and a more wild rugged landscape at the front filled with birds and birdsong. There is a large shed for use to put bikes and kayaks. Wet clothing and boots can be dried in the boiler house.

WTSE and two chicksArdrioch Farm is a cedar wood property on one level, set in an informal garden with lovely views across Loch Cuin, a sea loch, to the hills of Quinnish beyond. The farm is a small croft where sheep graze in the fields around the house and there are 20 acre of deciduous woodland for our guests to enjoy, in which we have had the very rare Large Heath Butterfly.

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 and this photo was taken by Robert Farrow, a guest  staying in our self-catering cottage. The adult eagle is sitting just above the nest with 2 chicks in, later we watched the adult feeding the chicks. The eagles are seen regularly flying over the house and garden.
For more pictures of the eagle go to the Garden Birds page.

White-tailed Sea Eagles and Hen Harriers can be seen flying over the hills and woodland at the rear of the farm and we have regular visits to the garden from  a Buzzard and Sparrowhawk. A short walk to the lochside may produce possible Red Deer and Otter as well as breeding ducks and waders.

A tour with Discover Mull wildlife is very worthwhile. Based at the farm, it will give you real flavour of everything Mull has to offer in the way of wildlife and spectacular scenery. A tour early in the week is recommended to give visitors the knowledge of North Mull's best wildlife watching sites. To see the latest sighting check out Arthur's Blog.

If you wish to join us on one of our tours book early to avoid disapointment, we hope to see many previous guests in our final year as well as lots of new guests.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the guests who have come out with us in the 18 years that Discover Mull Wildlife tours has been operating.
The Discover Mull Wildlife tour business is for sale for use from 15th July 2019
