Trip to Islay anyone ?

From Roger Ranson
Some details about our

Islay trip in February 2019 in case any Calderdale 

birders would like to join us.

I have been on this trip for at least 5 years and 

thoroughly recommend it.

We leave Halifax area on Fri. morning 15 Feb and

stay overnight at Ardlui ( Loch Lomond)

We catch the ferry from Kennacraig on Sat. lunchtime

and spend 5 nights at Red Lodge (near Bowmore)

We leave Islay Thursday a.m. and get back to 

Halifax area that evening.

The accomodation is run by "Aquila Ecology" who are 

personal friends of mine. Please look at their website.

I will take my car and will be joined by my son, so have

2 spare spaces available.

Costs are £300 for 5 nights at Red Lodge (sharing room)

or £360 for single occupancy.This includes breakfast, 

packed lunch and evening meal. All rooms en suite.

Overnight at Ardlui £35 each b&b sharing room

Foot passenger cost for ferry £13 return

Bird life is fantastic (Hen harrier roost close to Red Lodge)

Golden and Sea Eagles just about guaranteed

Geese everywhere .
