There is an abundance of wildlife in Lochaber and it’s one of the only places you can spot all of the “Big 5” in Scotland! So during your trip keep your eye out for the Golden Eagle, Otters, Red Deer, Red Squirrel and Seals – they’re hard to miss if you join one of the activities on offer during the festival and throughout the year.

To help you track down the “Big 5” and so much more, download one of the free Wild Lochaber Trail leaflets packed full of information to help discover the creatures that dwell in the Outdoor Capital of the UK.
