About Puffins

Peata Ruadh is  Scottish Gaelic meaning a sea bird with a coloured beak.

Peata Ruadh is an Atlantic Puffin. The name Puffin comes from the word "Puff" meaning to become swollen or puffed up.

Puffin chicks are called Pufflings and they take about six weeks to grow to full size.  

Puffins can be as tall as 18-20cm and can live for as long as 20 years or more.

The best time of year to see puffins is between April and August.
