One day of our holiday we walked along the stunning stretch of coast
between Stoer lighthouse
and the Old Man of Stoer.
The cliffs are home to several species of birds including black guillemot, guillemot, razorbill, fulmar,, bonxie (great skua) and raven though I couldn't help feeling there should be more of all these birds (you can read about the struggling populations of Scottish seabirds here).
There's a nice little tea and snack van near the lighthouse. The owner is a keen naturalist and keeps a list of recent sightings of birds, mammals and other species. If you are heading to Stoer, you can print this page off for a 10% discount on your first purchase from the tea and snack van. Just don't drink too much when you're there as there are no public toilets near either the lighthouse or the Old Man.
