Spring is the time when nature bursts back into life after the cold dark winter and Argyll is no exception.
In spring the nutrient rich waters off Scotland’s west coast sees the return of sea birds such as puffins, dolphins and porpoises appear in greater numbers, basking sharks arrive towards the end of Spring when the water gets warmer as do regular visitors Minke whales and the odd sighting of Orca. White tailed sea eagles are also seen along the coast of Mull and some other Inner Hebridean islands.
Boat trips run regularly from Oban between Spring and Autumn to explore the waters around Mull and further south to the famous Corryvreckan whirlpool between Scarba and Jura which are hotspots for whales, dolphins and sea eagles.
Argyll and the west coast of Scotland is known for its rich and diverse plant life. Spectacular examples can be seen in the various gardens of Argyll most of which are open to the public such as Ardmaddy Castle Gardens in Oban, Arduaine Garden to the south of Oban and Crarae Gardens just south of Inveraray all of which have superb displays of rhododendrons, azaleas, magnolias and many rare plants from around the world.
