    yes I have to be honest and say that pre injury I just walked my dogs on the local beaches of miles and miles as I have from a kid and saw birds but didnt take notice. i fell from my horse about three years ago and have had been impaired as a result. I have always grown up by the solway but have only post injury taken notice of the birds. Absolutelty, my springer by nature wants to flush birds and this too has to be taken into account as to where we go especially now
    with nesting birds.
    We walk every day, twice dailybetween beckfoot and mawbray and allonby , an area of natural outstanding beauty.
    But also wher people walk their dogs .. have for my nearly fifty yeras and I guess always will.

    We were on Skye for 8 days in February and had no problems letting the dogs off the lead. We would park up close to secluded beach sections and just let them run the beach.

    If your injury classes you as disabled the Scottish ferrys all do good discounts I believe and inter island ferrys may be a lot cheaper than you think. That said we totally loved Skye and will go again, mountains and beaches is good for the soul and a s a bonus you get the Highlands as well

    Didn't see any last couple of times we were there.... But then we don't let our hounds off (Barring when we still had the border collie and terriorist as the only way they would have been interested in sheep was if you tied a bloody stick to them)
    Unless we can see at least 30 miles of empty beach with a sheer cliff at the back of it....
    Whippets and the lurchers when we had them are very capable of spotting something on the next continent lol.

    none
    Corran ferry is free for any vehicle with a blue badge holder on board.
    Last time I looked, Calmac gave a 25% discount for vehicle but none for passengers, even for the holder of the blue badge.
