With luck you may even see otters, seals, eagles or dolphins. Deer tend to keep to the high ground during the summer, but sometimes you can see them on the Harris Estate near Ardhasaig and Ardvourlie along the main road from Tarbert to Stornoway. In the summer months there are many colourful wild flowers to be seen on the machair.
