Wildlife and Birds

North Uist and the islands offer a rich variety of wildlife for visitors to watch in their natural habitat. The RSPB reserve at Balranald is 15 minutes drive away and there are regular otter walks leaving from Langass every Wednesday to watch at the edge of the sea loch.

Golden Eagles are regularly sighted over Langass and Sea Eagles may be seen too as well as deer and stags on the hillsides. In early summer the sound of the corncrakes are often heard on the ‘machair’, the unique grassland strewn with wild flowers on the west side near the sea.
