Whale watching, Scottish Highlands, late June onwards

The waters around the Hebrides are home to a variety of whales in the summer months; more than 250 minke and pilot whales were spotted last year, along with rarer sightings of killer, fin and even humpback whales. Tours depart daily at 9am in the summer months, heading into open water for a two- or three-hour cruise. Alongside the whales, there's a good chance of seeing dolphins, porpoises and sharks, with white-tailed eagles and puffins in the skies above the boat.

Top tip "Don't assume that a bright, sunny day is the best weather for whale watching," says senior skipper Nick Davies. "It is much easier to spot them on a cloudy, calm day."
