GLENGORM WILDLIFE PROJECT
Just 5 miles outside of Tobermory is the stunning Glengorm Estate where you will also find Glengorm Castle B&B looking out across the Atlantic.
Visitor Centre: Situated next to the Glengorm Coffee shop is the Glengorm Visitor Centre. Come inside and learn about Glengorm's wildlife and history, find out about recent wildlife sightings, join one of our guided walks, visit our gift shop or try your hand at one of our daily kids crafts.
Guided Walks: With over 5,000 acres of estate to explore, our ranger offers daily guided walks to take you to the best wildlife spots on the estate. Glengorm is rich in archaeology and wildlife, boasting all of Mull’s charismatic species with the addition of several rarities, including the slender scotch burnet moth that is only found on Mull and nowhere else in the world!
Our guided walks are taken at a relaxed pace with frequent stops to look at wildlife or scenery. Because of our bespoke service, your walk is tailored to suit your schedule. There’s no rush to ‘fit everything in’ – if you see something special, you can stay and watch it for as long as you like.
See our calendar to find out what scheduled walks are already planned or book your walk at a time to suit you.

*Walking tours are available year-round and tailor-made or large group tours are available. Please note that due to the nature of the terrain, this experience is not suitable for guests with low fitness, walking difficulties, wheelchairs, mobility scooters or buggies. Booking essential.
Glengorm Castle is a B&B run by the Nelson family who have owned the castle and estate since the 1970’s. The Nelson’s strive to achieve the balance between farming and conservation and, as a result, founded the Glengorm Wildlife Project in 2013. The Glengorm Wildlife Project is a drive to improve knowledge of the estate’s natural heritage to better aid conservation management. By sharing their findings and passion with guests on guided walks, events and activities, they hope to engage people with nature and help safeguard the future of our wild places.
