The Inner Hebrides reported seeing a large walrus


In the Inner Hebrides, off the island of Mull, a walrus has been seen.

On Monday at the Treshnish Isles, creel fisherman Lorn MacRae discovered the Arctic animal hauled out on rocks.

The walrus was described as "massive" by the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust (HWDT), which was informed of the sighting.

A walrus known as Thor was spotted on the south and east coasts of England in late December and early January before making an appearance last week in Iceland.

A walrus was first spotted on Monday, according to HWDT, a marine charity that has been keeping track of wildlife off the west coast of Scotland for more than 25 years.

Walrus at Kinlochbervie
The science department at Kinlochbervie High School took this photo of a walrus in 2018.

In the past, walruses have been seen in Scotland.

In 2021, a young woman named Freya was spotted in Shetland.

A walrus was spotted in 2018 near the coasts of Highland, Western Isles, and Orkney.

It was believed that this walrus was the first to be spotted on the Scottish mainland since 1954 when it first appeared in the Highlands.
