About Us

Minibus and Corran ferry

Glenloy Wildlife have been running wildlife holidays in the West Highlands of Scotland since 2008. Based at Glenloy Lodge, a former hunting lodge in a rural location close to Fort William, we are ideally placed to show you the best of Scottish wildlife. There are plenty of iconic species right on our doorstep, including pine martens, eagles, deer, squirrels otters and rare insects such as the chequered skipper. Even wildcat have been recorded at the Lodge! Our objective is to offer you the chance to take advantage of our local expertise, whilst enjoying all the benefits of comfy accommodation and superb home cooking. Let us take the strain of showing you the very best of Highland scenery and nature without having to worry about driving. Share with us our enthusiasm for all aspects of the local environment including insects, plants, seashore creatures, ecology and geology, as well as the special Scottish birds and mammals. We are keen that guests are not just confined to a minibus, so we try to have at least one good walk a day enabling you to see all aspects of the local environment, whilst ensuring that you enjoy the clean Scottish air and a little, gentle exercise. Established and run by husband and wife partnership Jon and Angela Mercer, you will be offered a warm welcome and a holiday of unforgettable experiences. We enjoy a high proportion of repeat visits from guests who have found us right for them – come and see what you think!
