Wildlife

Whatever time of year you visit Fast Castle cottage, there is always something going on, whether its lambing on the farm in May, the coastal flowers blooming in the spring, or the seals pupping  on the beaches below Fast Castle in October.  Dowlaw is a known hotspot for birdwatchers and due to our location we get passing migratory birds frequently stopping off for a well earned break. A keen wildlife enthusiast will not be disappointed with the array of wildlife that can be found on the doorstep of the cottage.
