The clifftops and sea beneath Number 19 have an abundance of wildlife. It is common to observe Golden and Sea Eagles passing by and hunting at the bottom of the croft and buzzards hunting around the chalet. Number 19 directly overlooks the Ascrib Islands a complex of skerries, islets, undisturbed mainland shores and offshore islands in north-west Skye consistently support a breeding colony of the common seal Phoca vitulina. The site represents one of the larger discrete colonies of common seals in the UK, holding around 2% of the UK population.
Due to the elevated position of Number 19 you have an unspoilt view over the sea below; it is common to see a wide variety of seabirds, whales, dolphin and porpoise in the waters below. And if you are interested in fishing then several trawlers and creel boats fish in the Loch and is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wishing to observe how the seafood they well may be eating in their local restaurant is caught.
