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 .
