Isle of Arran is one of the UK's most spectacular islands with a great diversity
of scenery from dramatic peaks and valleys carved during the Ice Age to broad,
sheltered coastal bays.
In winter the island is a wildlife haven with Red
Deer, Otters, Common Seals and Red Squirrels.
The British Isles is a nation of islands. There are more
than 6,000 islands around our coast. They're great havens for wildlife too.
- Our islands offer amazing opportunities for
wildlife watching. Why not take a few tips from the Nature's Calendar team on
bird watching and fossil hunting?
