Blue Eyed Hare


Several years ago on Rathlin Island I saw a Blue eyed hare, properly known as the ‘Rathlin Golden hare’ the ones with blue eyes are a local mutation which has survived. The picture is a normal one, but there are blue eyed ones as well, honest.
We shall be back out to Rathlin Island in 2018 on one of our Mile building sailing. It is only a day’s sail from our Scottish base at Troon and has a lovely harbour plus a local drinking hole which is particularly good after the day trippers have returned to the mainland.
As well as the hares they are many seals and of course numerous sea birds. On the opposite mainland shore there are magnificent basalt columns and just down the coast is the World Heritage site Giant’s Causeway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant%27s_Causeway
