“The seal trips take an hour and are free if you see no seals!! Sing to them and they will come closer. The trip takes you round the local islands and in front of the farm so you can wave to any one you left reading a book in the cottage on the way back. You may spot dolphin, otters, porpoise or even a white tailed sea eagle. ”
