Fodor's Review

Gavin Maxwell's much loved account of his work with otters on the island of Eilean Ban, off the coast of Skye at Kyleakin, is commemorated here. There's an exhibit illustrating his work and wildlife tours that promise otters, seals, and lots of birds. The center itself is actually on Skye, just over the bridge from the Kyle of Lochalsh.
