Wildlife Holiday Cruise Gets a Guest Squirrel

A Scottish wildlife cruise on a loch (lake, sea inlet) outside of Glasgow usually offers its passengers the chance to “spot porpoises, basking sharks and even the odd whale and… many varieties of birds.”

But this week, the The Majestic Line’s Heritage and Wildlife of South Argyll cruise included a bit of actual wildlife right on board! A Red Squirrel seems to have ‘stowed away’ on The Majestic Line’s Glen Massan, and was spotted on the bow by Canadian professional photographer Steve Boyton.

Local National Park rangers plan to board the boat and safely trap the squirrel. They will release him/her back near the dock where the cruise originates.
