Orange Butterfly

Butterflies

Visit the Arkaig Butterfly Reserve by Loch Arkaig to get the chance to see the rare Chequered Skipper and the Pearl Bordered Fritillary butterfly.

On a trip down Glen Etive we were surrounded by Scotch Argus butterflies. We stopped for a picnic and the butterflies flew all around and landed on us. One in particular was particularly fond of a bottle of orange juice, no doubt after the sugar. There are some pretty big dragonflies down there too.
