RSPB's Islay reserves at Loch Gruinart and The Oa offer opportunities to see a broad range of Islay's Wildlife. Loch Gruinart in the north of the island has a great viewing hide in amongst waders and waterfowl, a woodland walk and regular guided walks. The Oa has a circular walk across moorland and around dramatic cliffs, with regular guided walks where it is possible to see chough, peregrine and eagles.
