Loch Dunvegan has a big colony of (common) seals. Some 300-400 seals are resting and hunting on and between the many small islands.
From the Dunvegan Castle you can make small boat trips to the seals, giving you the opportunity to see them real close.

Aww, I do love photos of seals - I'm not sure whether you have caught this one mid-blink, if it has a cataract, or if there is strong reflection from the sky, but the right eye does look clouded or blind, which I find mildly distracting. I might have been tempted to try for a shallower dof, but respect your choice.

Beautifully done. Perfect exposure. DOF. The look. Composition It's a pretty slow moving animal so this helps get the shot right but the other factors mentioned make this a clean and lovable image.
