A Minke Whale

A Common Minke Whale photographed off the coast of Arisaig. They are one of the smaller species of whales and typically grow to around 7-8 metres in length.

They are often inquisitive and happy to be around boats. This, combined with their relative abundance off the west coast of Scotland in the summer months, has led to the popularity of whale-watching cruises.
