Otters- Isle of Lewis - Isle of Harris - Western Isles Photos
You can see otters all round the Western Isles coastlines. These otters are active during the day, unlike the otters you see in freshwaters which are nocturnal. Otters have webbed feet and thick fur, just right for the sea life.

Western Isles Wildlife Photos - Otters

Otters leave scent markings - spraints - in important areas to them. If a location is very important and used throughout the year the spraints can build into mounds which will be brighter green than the surrounding land due to the rich fertilising effect of the droppings. An otters spraint will smell musky and have a distinct fishy scent, a most distinctive smell.
