Wildlife on Davaar

Davaar Island is a haven for wildlife with plenty of action on the sand and pebble causeway, moorland, rugged cliffs, and rocky seashore. Sea eagles, otters, peregrine falcons and feral goats may be spotted all year and the island hosts any number of spring and autumn migrating birds. Cockles may be foraged year round from The Doirlinn. The warmer months are the best time to see whales, dolphins and basking sharks in the waters below the cliffs of the east coast, and its also the best time to see gannets from the large colony of Ailsa Craig swoop and dive for food alongside the causeway.
