The excitement about this chick is that it's the first chick be raised on the island and shows how this one persecuted bird is starting to expand its range.
Gemma Livingstone of Torridon Sea Tours said 'we have had some fantastic sightings of the adults and their chick recently. The eagles were not introduced to our area but have came of their own accord and hopefully they will be there for a long time to come.'

Here's a quote from a very contented customer:
"Just wanted to say thank you, for the best day we have ever had in all the years we have been visiting Scotland.
"The trip to Kinloch Hourn, one we have made several times before ourselves, was made so very special by the abundance of wildlife, your knowledge of the local history, the plant life, Billy's boat trip to Barrisdale Island & yes, even the bugs.
"I doubt will we ever find anything to match that day, we will keep trying though".
